Snow fell in Aroostook County Thursday, April 24, more than one month after the official start to spring. Here's the view on Mars Hill mountain, just below Presque Isle where MPBN Technology Crew members Jeff Mahaney and Aaron Carter encountered winter-like conditions. The pair were checking in on the MPBN TV transmitter located on top of the mountain.

According to the National Weather Service in Caribou, Maine the three inches of snow accumulated in Aroostook County is the biggest snowfall so late in the season since April 29, 2005 when 3.6 inches was observed.
