The Ying and Yang of Winter on Peaks Island

What a wonderful set of days we just had as respite from a Maine winter. Days in the 30's, no wind and quite a bit of sun. Just an excellent time to sit on the deck in the lee of a slight northwesterly breeze and soak up the sun while listening to the last storm's snow melt. A nice change of pace while working on my tan----so to speak.

I went to bed last night with the weather forecast being some light snow with no more than a two inch accumulation. As usual, the professionals were more than a tich off in their projections since more than a few locations wound up with about a foot of snow, many towns are holding parking bans and Peaks Island earned about 6-8 inches of the white stuff. It was tough to be more precise since the winds were pretty strong so some parts of our yard were pretty barren and other parts had 2-3 foot drifts. The storm finally wound down around 3pm so the shoveling has commenced. Here's a few pics from both sides of the equation. Take your pick of which kind of day you'd rather have.

Wow. The house in the first picture is where I grew up in the 60s. Thank you.
