Life in Maine - The Beauty and the Beast

Last night we had another storm. Seriously? We just had an ice storm last week and some Mainers are still in the dark and freezing cold because they haven't gotten their power back since then.
Well, that's what life in Maine is all about. I don't have a choice but to deal with it. And how do I deal with this kind of situation? I fix with with ice cream.

Yup, last night while Mother Nature was doing her business out there, I was digging into my ice cream straight from the tub.
 Our fleshly plowed driveway.

So yes, we had heavy mixed of rain and snow. As usual, it made a lot of mess.
In case you are wondering, that was my car. I have scraped some part of it.
 I was thinking of not scrapping the snow but I don't think it's a good idea to drive on that to work.

It took me almost 30 minutes to scrape the snow off my car and headed out to work. But scrapping snow is not the fun part. Driving is.
The fun started here at Cape Road.

Down to Townhouse Road.
Straight to Route 202
Continued to Route 111.
And ended at my work place in Main Street. Oh I just dreaded driving in the slushy, messy and crappy road.

But I had to admit there is also a beautiful side of it. Because, I did wake up this morning to this wonderful winter wonderland.

indeed snow is so pristine and beautiful Ruthi, but I do understnad hear you why you dread driving in the slushy road, I always get scared driving in icy road, okay if it is flat, but on a windy road, gosh, I can't stop from praying :)
