This images gives you a pretty good idea what the southern Maine region is facing this morning. When I walked to the foot of our driveway and looked up the rise, this is what the visibility looked like. Not a good day for people, dogs or cats. Just about everything around this neck of the woods is closed. Local radio is saying that unless you have a good reason, like an emergency, stay home. This is a monster snowstorm stretching from Texas, blanketing the Midwest, right up through New England to Maine, with snow, ice and freezing rain. Now, that's quite a volatile cocktail of trouble. I'll not be venturing out. The wood box is stocked. The birdfeeders are loaded. The coffee is brewed. The cats are curled and sleeping, and I'll be watching this one from the other side of the glass. Uh oh! The ground is rumbling; the plow is coming. Gotta run!
