The season’s first big snowstorm was a record breaker, and it took most of the state by surprise Friday, sending public works officials scurrying to clear the roads and emergency crews responding to car wrecks. Numerous accidents were reported in Franklin, Oxford, Androscoggin and Cumberland counties, officials said. Snow accumulations ranged from a couple of inches in Rumford to about 4 in Norway, Paris, Lewiston-Auburn and almost 6 in Portland by Friday night. Up to 8 inches were expected by daybreak Saturday, officials said.
