Let it snow

Snow, and then more snow, fell across Penobscot and Castine over the past week, including a Thursday, January 4, blizzard that dumped well over a foot of snow and closed down schools, businesses and town offices. Part of every snowfall is the cleanup the next morning, and plow trucks, snowblowers and shovels were hard at work by Friday morning.
