Tuesday, December 4 - Winter Storm Warning

Yup, these people think they're in the midst of winter. We may get an inch overnight and tomorrow -- but it should melt during the day, and temps will be back up to 55 by the weekend. The other day, Barry walked the 1/4 mile to the mailbox wearing shorts and a tee-shirt. The neighbor, clad in two sweatshirts, hat and gloves, said "You really ARE from Maine, aren't you?"

Seriously though, this is one of the reasons we moved here. Even though it was colder here than in Maine this morning (got down to 18 here), as Clif H. in Waterville told me on the phone, we don't have to shovel "cold". We watched the storm in Maine Monday and today, but there wasn't much coverage about Maine down here -- they focused on New York instead.

So as we hunker down tonight with plenty of kerosene for the heater, wood for the fireplace, and hot chocolate for our tummies ... we'll be thinking of friends and family shoveling out from one of what we hope will NOT be many snowstorms back home.
