We took the image below yesterday to remind us of what a clear, crisp, hint-of-spring March day looks like. We’re in for several foul days, with icy rain and up to a foot of snow, according to the weather tellers who have issued a Winter Storm Warning for our county.


Of course, such generalizations often are not exactly right for each coastal town in DownEast Maine; many towns have their own mini-climates, depending on the size of harbors and other topography. Often, it’s snowing in nearby Blue Hill and not here and vice versa.

The remembrance image above is of Acadia National Park as seen from Brooklin across Blue Hill Bay. Later today or tomorrow, we may not be able to see across the Bay. (Brooklin, Maine)
