A three day ice storm wrought havoc over the holidays in Castine and across the Blue Hill Peninsula. The storm was felt on Deer Isle as well, though to a lesser extent. The storm began late Saturday evening, December 21 (the first official day of winter) and continued through Monday, December 23. Power outages continued for several days for many residents.
