It’s about mid-day yesterday as we take this image on the first day of Spring. The temperature is in the low 40’s (F), the sky is clear blue, and the water is tinged with green. In a word: beautiful. We’re looking across a small bay to a 940-foot hill that looms over a small town, all of which share a name –Town of Blue Hill, Blue Hill, and Blue Hill Bay.


When the Town was settled in 1762, the Hill was densely covered with trees, mostly Fir and Spruce, that emitted a dark blue hue when seen from a distance. (The Hill still does that under certain conditions.) As we speak, this morning also is beautiful. However, our weather tellers are forecasting our fourth March snow storm for tonight and tomorrow.
