Calm Before the Next Storm

Peaks Island's week long vacation is about to end. It's been a real nice stretch weather wise with the temps above freezing all week long melting off most of the snow cover. We had a couple of days above 50 and one even above 60 degrees; break out the shorts was the battle cry of our teens! I love the sight of shorts on the 7:15am boat on a January morning!! Reality will set in tomorrow morning with the approach of another Nor'easter which should dump about a foot of fresh new snow with strong winds on our little island community. Oh well, it is January after all.

We went uptown yesterday to walk the aisles of the local food mart packing in our supplies to make it through another Maine winter's storm. The weather was absolutely calm with more than a few flatlanders visiting the island for the day and the bay even had a couple of boats out enjoying a very early season's short sail. More pictures of snow will surely occupy the next edition. Enjoy the calm of today at least.
