    NOV. 26: It was slow going for this bicyclist as she made her way along Congress Street as a major snowstorm hit Maine on the day before Thanksgiving. The storm wreaked across the state, plunging tens of thousands of homes into darkness and causing a fatal accident in Berwick and dozens of other car crashes on one of the year’s busiest travel days. The severity of the storm and the widepread outages – more than 83,000 homes were without power in Central Maine Power Co. and Emera Maine’s service areas at 11 p.m. – prompted Gov. Paul LePage to issue a limited emergency proclamation that allowed crews from Canada to work longer hours as they tried to restore power to as many homes as possible for the Thanksgiving holiday.

    DEC. 10: Sidewalk conditions during the nor'easter were more slippery than some Portland residents had seen in a long time. The slick bricks caused many to shuffle and slide their way around the city, while others gave up and walked on roads that were wet but nowhere near as icy. Others bought up local supplies of urban ice-trekking gear – studded footwear that can be slipped over or strapped on boots and shoes. This stretch of sidewalk along Portland’s Congress Street looked more like an ice rink after days of rain, sleet and temperatures hovering around freezing. “It doesn’t take more than a second for you to end up on your keister,” said Dr. Nathan Mick, medical director of Maine Medical Center’s emergency department.
