Saturday’s storm and the aftermath


Saturday’s Nor’easter pummeled the state with heavy snow and wind, bringing well over a foot of snow in some areas.

Now, all Mainers have to do is dig themselves out.

Here are some pics from yesterday’s storm and of Mainers — and pets — who are (or not so much) enjoying it.
