The winter storm that hit Maine the night of Dec. 29 disrupted power at 138,000 homes and businesses, with high winds and heavy snow causing more than 100,000 outages before 8 a.m. the following day, according to Central Maine Power. Almost all homes in Cumberland and North Yarmouth were without power much of Dec. 30; as of 4 p.m. Dec. 31 about 7,500 customers were still without power.  The above photo shows a fallen tree that had downed wires on Memorial Highway (Route 9) in North Yarmouth, just north of North Road.
