As this is being written, the sun is trying to fight through clouds and fog, and it’s hard to tell who’s winning the bout. It all started Wednesday, May 3, when this image was taken. The clouds collected and curtained off a beautiful morning that day.

Since then, we’ve mostly had overcast, drenching rain, and fog – until the sun picked another fight this morning. We’re rooting for the sun, but the smart meteorology money is on continued dreary weather for a few days. We’ve decided to make believe that it’s May 3. (Brooklin, Maine)
