Flashback

What just happened here? What do they say about weather in Maine? Don't like it? Just wait a minute. Where did that early spring weather of last week go? We had such high hopes. Yesterday morning, we awoke to a winter wonderland outside our windows. For the last week or so I've had this sickly feeling; things were moving too fast; I'd even seen tulips pushing up in the yard. So I wasn't surprised to see all the white stuff covering the lawn. By noon, it was a winter wonderland around here, but luckily it disappeared soon.

Last evening, we celebrated P's big night at Grace Restaurant and had a delicious repast with wonderful friends. The restaurant is in the former Chestnut Street Church, a pre-Civil War building that makes the dining experience quite unique. Not quite a religious experience however.

  1. These early spring storms are some of my favorites. In part I think because they are so fleeting. But they are also usually mesmerizingly beautiful.

  2. You are not the only one who got surprised today! Temperatures have dropped here and there is this strong and cold wind! What happened to the blue sky and to the (almost) 20ºC?
    That's a beautiful shot though!

  5. Nice shot. It might get cold again this weekend, but it won't last.

  6. I looked at the link for the old church turned restaurant. It appears to be well preserved. Is that a bar where the altar should be? That's fitting I suppose. Here is to Spring. Cheers.

  7. Mother Nature never looks at a calendar as her icy fingers ignore Spring.
    Sunny :)

  8. I like the starkness of this shot, and your copy makes me want to see the inside of the Chestnut Street Church and feel that atmosphere.

    Excellent title, on both counts.
