In case you were wondering what it’s like going to school in Maine…

In case you were wondering what it’s like going to school in Maine (What’s that? You were!?), look no further. As you likely know, the northeastern United States witnessed record snowfall last week during Winter Storm Nemo, a perfect storm of a blizzard. The East Coast shut down as more than three feet (one meter) of snow fell over the course of forty-eight hours. If you have read The Weekly Show’s About page (and you totally should), you know that I go to school in a small town in the middle of nowhere Maine (woohoo!). I was able to record part of a subsequent storm on campus last week, so if you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to live in Maine, check out the videos below! I have uploaded a gallery of photos for you guys as well. If you like them, be sure to visit The Weekly Show’s Photography section! Enjoy!

Also, if you are curious about what it’s like to have your eyelashes frozen together and your ears coated with ice, you should definitely drop by Maine next time we have a blizzard!

So what do you think? Want to live in Maine? Is this all the more reason never to visit it? Let me know in the comments section below!

Comment question of the week

Does this make you want to visit or avoid Maine? Did you experience Winter Storm Nemo (please, no “Finding Nemo” jokes…)?

  1. As a Hawaiian Islander I am intrigued/terrified by the thought of a long snowy winter. However, I really would like to visit Maine someday in the fall or winter.

    I spent a week in Maine in August and I thought it was cold then! People were wearing sweaters in the summer.

    • haha yes Maine gets cold before the summer is even over! It definitely takes some time to get used to. You should definitely visit the Northeast sometime in the winter–the snow is amazing. There’s nothing quite like trying to walk through three feet of powder!
