Safe travels to all today / tonight / tomorrow & Happy New Year.

It's currently 33* here at 10:16 AM & will only get one more degree higher for the day.
Going to have snow showers in the afternoon into eve & windy. News on TV this morn said this eve the roads will be slick so a winter advosory will be posted.
Radar is quite colorful, light greens, pinks, & blue knocking on our door. But the radar in motion on the weather channel's web site freezes up before it gets done. Had been doing this last few days. They must be updating it or something? Anyway, not a good weather day for us.

Got to love those freakin weather sites...what do they know about the weather for Bridgton. Step out on my porch this morning and look at the thermometer and it reads 10* and we have no wind.

The Mount Washington Observatory website is reading -15* and 74 mph winds with a wind chill of -89*

If you go to this website and click on the weather symbol in the upper right hand corner and enter the zip code of 04009, they get all their data for Bridgton from Shawnee Peak Ski Resort.

This is the website I use for Mount Washington.

Knights Hill...The homes of the rich and infamous. Multi-million dollar homes driving our taxes through the roof. But that is not the only area of town that is like that. Our town is known as more water than land. Moose Pond, like many others in our town, is so large that many years ago they had to build major roadways over the ponds and lakes leaving a few major size pipes for boats to fit through. That is Pleasant Mountain on the right with Shawnee Peak Ski Resort coming down it. I thought this arial photo would be a much better shot with Moose Pond at the base of it.

We have 5200 year round residents, then it swells to 35,000 when the seasonal residents come back, and people think we are insane living on a lake with no public access, no power motors allowed, and it is spring fed, all the fishing I could want, no jet skis or power boats to get in the way, no place to be in a hurry to...gee, sounds ideal to me. Our home is only 750 square feet. We don't need anything huge. I like it the way it is.

You know I will never figure out why they call it Knights Hill, because the whole thing is not more than a few hundred feet in elevation...meanwhile where I live is close to a thousand and we live at the lowest point of the whole road. The highest point is more than 1200 feet on either side of us. However the height of Pleasant Mountain is 2106 feet. To hike it following the trails, it is 3.4 miles.

Okay, that is enough of that.

I think you better look at your calendar again and redo the math...it is 358 days until Christmas 2013. Still a disgusting thought.

Here is an even worse thought...because of the snowstorm we still have not sent out some of the Christmas gifts for 2012 nor have we received them all either. These were people we were supposed to get together with on that day.
