As February rears its head, the question on the minds of many around here is: Where's the snow? I know. I know. It's only February, and this month and March are still prime winter months up here but... It has been a strange winter so far. Halloween snow! Thanksgiving snow! Christmas snow! But really not much else. Snowmobile distributorships are in a panic. Think Snow! The annual ice fishing derby, on nearby Sebago Lake scheduled for two weeks away, has been cancelled, because of unsafe ice conditions. Is something really afoot around these parts? I'm not going there quite yet. I know one thing, I don't plan to pack away my snow shovel right yet. I've lived in this state just about my whole life, and I so know a bit about Maine winters. The week ahead? Pretty mild with no white stuff in sight. I can live with that.
