This is the first daybreak of 2019 in Naskeag Harbor, a few hours ago, which means it’s among the first daybreaks in the United States. (The top of very nearby Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park wins the contest for the first sun rays most of the time – when there is sun – according to a study last month by Yankee Magazine.)

Let’s face it: our new year baby is not pretty – she was snow and sleet in the early a.m. and whipping rain with wind gusts of 22 miles per hour at the appointed time for “sunrise,” when these images were taken.  Glad we don’t believe in omens.
