Here we have last night’s red sunset, which signaled that today would be clear. (“Red sky at night, sailors’ delight/Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.”)


The forecast was correct: Today dawned clear, sunny, cold, and windy. As we speak, according to the North Brooklin weather station, it’s 9 measured degrees (F) and the wind is gusting at 17 miles per hour, creating a wind chill of (“feels like”) 1 degree. Great Cove is slate blue, edged with ice, and full of whitecaps. Bracing! (Brooklin, Maine)
