First Day of Winter Brings Snows 

Mainers are digging out from a nor’easter that dumped more than three feet of snow on parts of the state.

According to the Associated Press, Eric Schwibs from the National Weather Services says Eustis recorded a whopping 41.8 inches of snow at what he described as &quot:the sweet spot of the storm.&quot:

Other parts of Maine saw lesser amounts, but most towns and cities still saw more than a foot of snow.

Waterville recorded 18 inches, Skowhegan 16 inches, Augusta 14.5 inches, Portland 14 inches and Bangor 13 inches.

Hundreds of schools and businesses are reporting cancellations or delays.

State employees have been told to stay home until at least noon on Monday because of the storm.

Governor John Baldacci wants people to avoid unnecessary travel until conditions clear.
