beaver, I had to laugh at that mound of snow in that picture.
Our Easter forecast right now says 50% showers high of 54*
Today, mostly cloudy & high of 42*. We're currently at 40* right now.

That picture was taken last Friday and they have been building it since February 6th. We have had more than 60 inches of the stuff since the beginning of February. To some that may not sound like much, to others that may sound like a lot. But to put things in perspective, we have had just under 90 inches for the entire winter season. So we have been busy people with our snow plows, snow blowers, and snow shovels over the last month and half.
A few winters ago we had more than 125 inches and that was the snowiest winter in more than 30 years. These last few years we have seen more snow than we are accustomed to and for those that are not used to it, they think we are nuts for wanting to live here...like my neighbors, but their kids love it and don't want to live anywhere else. They don't miss the heat of Texas. They are just not fond of the cold weather of Maine, but they love the snow. I have told them they can't have it both ways...you can't have real snow without the real cold. I remember when they first moved here and they thought 5 inches was a lot. They have now learned what a lot is as we have had several that have gone well over 18 inches in one shot. Got to love it.

Goooood Morning SHR
Good ol' Maxwell House this morning. I got a feeling it's going to be a long day. Temps in the low 30's and a 30% chance of a shower.

March 28 is . . . . Something On A Stick Day
Well, the family doesn't like the regular corn dogs on a stick, they like the mini ones instead.

Doesn't have to be anything specific? Any ol' thing on a stick?

That's how I take it, "anything on a stick".
So if you wanted carmel apple, that's on a stick.
Though I wouldn't call cotton candy on a stick, that's a paper funnel.

Spaghetti on a stick?!? Probably too messy.

To think this was us a week ago in town.

Very pretty scene... as long as it's in a photo.

It didn't use to be, while a lot it has melted...there is still a fair amount of it on the ground.

The only time I like snow is when I can see pretty pictures like that one. But I hate the mess when it happens here, but it's pretty to see. I'm just glad our snow is gone, except for mounds here & there where people or business had drives shoveled.

Ooh, sounds good. Making me ice cream hungry.

Shorey Park has to be a piece of paradise snow included. It is just plain beautiful.
