Snow this morning!

Spring Snow in MaineMarch in Maine often surprises us with a dusting of white, reminding us that winter still holds its grip even as spring tiptoes closer. We've been relishing the warmer days, a welcome relief after a winter that seemed hesitant to show its face. But don't let a late-season snowstorm dampen your spirits; spring is surely on its way, even if Saturday's forecast promises another snowstorm.

The third time is the charm?

Sunday, we endured our 3rd severe storm of the winter. Like the last two it arrived with wind, rain and coincided with an astronomically high tide. The tide inundated many harbors locally and Thomaston was no exception. The picture shows a normal high tide and yesterday a little before high tide when I visited the pilings in the picture were nearly submerged, all but a foot or so below the water’s surface.
