Before & After the Storm Winter on Main Street Saco, Maine February ​2019

These photos were taken the day before and after a snowstorm on Main Street, Saco. They show how something that falls from the sky can completely change the landscape. From the streets, the sidewalks, and the people we adjust our day around snow and it impacts us more than we realize. Saco has gotten around 45 inches of snow to date and in the next three days, we have two more chances at getting plowable snow.
