Spring Soon?

Lots of little snowstorms these days a few inches overnight and then cold lows some nights near 0. not really what you would think of as spring weather, but the days are getting longer, the sun definitely has more strength, and it won't be long until we change the clocks. Like always in troubled times the natural world proceeds like it always has. Soon enough spring will be here.

A winter day out on the Maine coast

Winter is not all lugging firewood and shoveling snow. Over the last few days we've had a warm stretch today it was actually in the 40s. Argy and I took the day off and drove down to Acadia National Park. Not the part that you all think of; rather the Schoodic peninsula. This part of the park is not on Mount Desert Island it is on the mainland and much less visited.

Winter Just Seems to Drag on this year

It has been several years since we had deep cold for any length of time. All of us are asking when will winter be over. Wood piles are shrinking rapidly, and we are all wondering when warmer days will come. For the record on these cold days, I bring in 25 sticks of firewood for each stove and will need the same amount tomorrow. Still, this is Maine and the weather could change at any moment.
