It's funny. You can always count on a good snowstorm or ice event during February Vacation. It seems like every year there's something, and usually it impacts the High School Basketball Tournament games at the Cross Insurance Center, and before that at the old Bangor Auditorium. This year, there are no Tourney Games in Bangor, because of COVID-19, but there will still be a storm!

There is currently a Winter Weather Advisory in effect from Midnight to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, February 16th.
