You know winter comes every year and you know it's going to be cold. You don't have delusions that you're going to be able to take a nice long walk in the neighborhood with nothing but a light jacket on. You know what you're up against… or so you thought. Sometimes, Mother Nature just sneaks up on you and brings you a surprise. And if you're not careful, you and your property could take a beating. This is why it is important that your home is prepared for any kind of weather. Be it vinyl windows in Maine or seamless gutters or fiberglass doors, adding another layer of protection for your home will be definitely worth it.

After a week of above-normal temperatures, a snowstorm swept into southern Maine on Saturday afternoon and forecasts called for a return to frigid temperatures this week.

“It’s the dreaded polar vortex, back like a bad penny,” said Eric Sinsabaugh, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “Of course, it is January.”

Much of the snowpack in the southern part of the state had melted since last weekend, with temperatures that reached 50 degrees in some areas. But Saturday’s storm covered all the bare spots, and then some.

Heaviest hit was York County, which Sinsabaugh said would get about 7 inches of snow by the time the storm pulled out to the northeast Saturday night.
