BANGOR- Now that we’ve had the first real snowfall of the season, people are working on cleaning up and getting ready for more.
“I don’t like it. It came early. It snowed on my birthday. That’s not cool,” said Thomas Demers, a Bangor resident.
If you live in Maine, snow is no stranger.
People are chipping away at the first and most definitely not last real snowfall of the season.
“No one likes shoveling, you have to do it because its wintertime,” said Rayshaun Moore, a Bangor resident.
“I don’t mind it, Once you get it, you get warm. It keeps you warm. You just have to get in the groove,” said Moore’s friend, Jamel Slaughter.
Not everyone is upset about the snow, as it gives them an opportunity to do what they love.
“I really enjoy it. I like to ice climb and enjoy the winter sports and snow shoeing and stuff. It’s not a big deal for me,” said Joshua McGuire, a Parkman resident.
For the most part, people say snow here is a way of life.
“It’s kind of a pain, but I live in Maine, so I have to deal with that,” Moore said.
Unfortunately, if you were looking to build a snowman or have a snowball fight, conditions during this storm were not ideal.
Since the temperatures have been so low, the snow has frozen.
However, there will be other chances throughout the winter.
