Weather Warning! Nor'easter Friday-Saturday
A friendly reminder to be cautious on the roads and maintain safe distances from the plow trucks. They work hard to keep us safe, let's do our part to keep them safe! Stay off the roads if at all possible. Sand is available at the sand shed for Sumner residents.
We do our best to stay open, but in the event of inclement weather please check back to our website for any closures or schedule changes!

Posted from WGME "...Winter storm begins early on Friday.
We’ll likely see a few rain or snow showers before sunrise, with lighter precipitation for the morning hours.
The steadier precipitation moves in for the late morning and early afternoon hours...
The heaviest precipitation moves in Friday evening and overnight...
Winds will also be the strongest Friday night.
While they are not looking overly impressive, with the heavy wet snow we could see some scattered outages.
Gusts will be up to 40mph along the coast, with 30-35mph gusts inland.
By Saturday morning, the storm will still be ongoing with some heavy snowfall rates. Colder air will move into the system on Saturday... Rain at the very immediate coastline and snow further inland continues into Saturday, and much of the day is looking windy and snowy.
The whole event winds down on Saturday evening and overnight, with a few snow showers lingering into early Sunday.
Highest totals for this storm in the mountains, and high totals as well for areas just a few miles inland of the coast. Still a big question mark on exact totals in the Portland area, but a few inches are likely at least.
Totals look impressive inland. Up to a foot is possible in Lewiston-Auburn, up to 6 inches in Sanford, and up to a foot and a half are possible in the mountains.
For the Augusta area, totals will likely be slightly lower in the 3-6 inch range. Still very iffy on Portland area totals.
Temperatures will have to be watched very closely through the entire event. I would plan on treacherous travel from Friday early afternoon through Saturday evening.
After the storm moves out, a quiet stretch of weather begins next week. The sun will return by Monday, with highs seasonably cool in the low to mid 30s."
