For the most part, when it comes to the weather, Maine is a really safe place to live.  While we do get a few big snow storms or Nor'easters each winter, we rarely have to deal with hurricanes, ice storms, or tornadoes.

Notice I said "rarely"?

Yes, those types of weather events do happen in the Pine Tree State.  Those of us with kids probably remember how our trick-or-treating plans were quite a bit different about four years ago and most of us remember a particular ice storm.

Check out our list of really memorable weather events that (fairly) recently happened here in Maine.

Do You Remember These 8 Crazy Maine Weather Events?

Personally, I had a few issues trying to get to a DJ gig back in the summer of 2017.  A series of tornadoes ripped through Western Maine, bringing down trees.  Those trees blocked several major roads, including Route 302.  Fortunately, the great first responders of that area set up a series of detours that allowed me to make it to my job in time.

So, what other crazy weather events need to be added to this list?  Also, do you have any pictures of wild weather here in Maine?  Let us know on Facebook or by sending us a message through our app.
