Believe it or not, there is a major city on the East Coast that has worse cell service than our local area.

Recently, I took a trip to the tippy top of the US, and by the tippy top, I mean Maine. While I had a total blast in Maine, Portland to be specific, I realized something was off. While I was waiting for my Twitter feed to refresh for the millionth time, it hit me: the cell service here SUCKS.

I really didn't think it was possible to find worse cell service than the Hudson Valley. And it's not like I have a mega discounted phone line, I have Verizon. They're usually pretty good, except for the Hudson Valley and apparently Portland, Maine.

This is also surprising because Portland, Maine is a major port city. It's also a huge tourist city. You would think the cell service would be phenomenal.

If you ever can't reach me on my cell phone, it's probably because I'm home or in Portland. Try reaching me with a carrier pigeon instead.
