Because the ice and lack of power wasn't enough, the National Weather Service in Caribou has put our area under a Winter Weather Advisory from 1 PM Thursday December 26th to 1 AM Friday, December 27th.

I would strongly urge you to put down some ice melt or salt to eat up the ice that is on your driveway and sidewalks, steps, porches etc. as the upcoming snow will blanket the ice, and you won't be able to see where the slippery, frozen areas are!

Here's the latest advisory
