The snow melting from the mountains is tearing down through the rivers of Western Maine but we have been spared the devastating floods that are affecting Northern Maine.
The Aroostock County town of Fort Kent where the U.S. Biathlon team is headquartered is really suffering. The St. John River flows through Fort Kent (quite literally right now). The St. John provides an international border between the United States and Canada.
We were up there in February for a ski race and the picture on the right was taken then. The County received several more feet of snow after our visit and the melt along with 5 inches of rain early this week have made things pretty dicey up there.
Maine is a beautiful state, abundant with natural beauty and rightfully coined "vacationland" but Spring isn't the best time to plan a visit.
