Well, 33 1/2 hours later, we have our power back, but there are still many in the dark this morning, 20,000 CMP(Central Maine Power) says. This is the third time this winter that snow, ice or freezing rain has knocked out power in southern Maine for a significant amount of time. First time for us though. Snow! It's what we love about life in Maine; it's what we hate! Looking out the front door Monday AM, and I could just tell, we were in trouble. Lived here awhile? You know. Heavy, wet, whiteness covering every tree, everywhere and bending many, in homage, to the ground... and we still have March to go! Think mud! Think spring!


  1. You're right. Soon we'll be pulling our cars out of the mud. Then it will be nice to go back and revisit these delicate traceries.

  2. Glad you finally got power! We go through that unhappiness during hurricanes! It's a beautiful sight, though!
