A helpful hand for the labors of a Maine winter
FRENCHVILLE, Maine — Ron Tardif spent several days chipping away at this snowbank in front of his home on U.S. Route 1 in Frenchville. Tardif’s grandson, Jacob Lilly, 11, who stops by after school, helped with the task of whittling away at the mountain of snow. “It gets packed pretty hard. It’s like ice,” Tardif said, Friday, March 24, as he stood with Lilly in front of the snowblower he uses to disperse the ice chunks around his front yard.
