Kid You Not

My car is out of its all-encompassing snow bank. No more does it sit, surrounded by 5 feet of snow, incapable of movement, frozen. It has been set free. Not only is my lovely 4-wheel drive (Thank God for 4-wheel drive) Subaru free, it is now sitting at the end of my driveway, ready to…

Complaining Won’t Shift Snow

Weather is so boring. I’m sick to death of weather. And today? More weather is on its way. We’re supposed to get another foot of snow. I’m like, uh, what? After only small snowfalls of less than 3″ for the entire winter, we get 5 feet in a few days? Hello? I’m going to do…

Sigh

If you were here, you’d move. As soon as possible. It isn’t snowing a lot – it’s snowing a HELL of a lot. It’s hard to say how much snow there is on the ground right now. I’d say around 14″ but it’s all drifted from winds last night so it’s hard to say. There…

Sunday Sewing and a Headache

I have a headache. I’m letting you know this right up front so if I make a lot of errors in spelling, you’ll know why. I get barometric pressure headaches. This is stupid. I have no idea why my head decides to hurt like Hades when there’s a low pressure system within 150 miles of…

Uh Oh

I woke up early this morning, hearing the freezing rain hit my windows. Hmm. No matter where I’ve lived across the US, freezing rain is ugly. There were two bad ice storms in Illinois when I was growing up. One when I was 6 and one when I was 13. I remember these storms because…

Weather Forecast

I’ve been checking out  the Weather Forecast Bangor, ME for a few days now. Ever since I learned that a storm would roll in this weekend. One thing you have to do if you live in Maine is watch for snowstorms. Usually they aren’t just a few inches of snow. Most of the time they’re 20″ of snow….

Where’d You Go?

Maybe this was the last sunset. Or is it a sunrise????? Who can tell? Whatever it is, we haven’t seen the sun here in mid-coast Maine for days ……. could be weeks – it feels like weeks. On a positive note, being positive better than being negative, we also haven’t seen the white stuff from…

Over

Nobody told the weathah that it’s the last day of summer. Nobody. Right now, at 12:01 pm, it is 86. It will be hotter in a couple of hours ………. I’m always grateful for A/C after living in a few homes without it. Like our home on PEI. Who would think you’d need air conditioning…

Ah-yuh That’s Enough

I can absolutely and with certainty say that I have had enough winter. We have piles of winter sitting on the sides of the roads. I have huge piles of winter in my driveway. The temperature hasn’t been over 12 degrees in so long I wouldn’t know how to act if it warmed up to…

The Heavens Have Opened Their Spout

It has poured rain on us for two days now. It seems a shame when others are faced with drought that we have so much rain we’re under a flash flood watch. I remember our last flash flood, one Saturday when I needed to get to the grocery store – no food in the house….

Here He Comes

He doesn’t look like much and I’m sure all we’ll get here is a lot of rain. It will be windier than usual, but the real problem for me is the low pressure. Whenever we’re getting weathah, my head goes into a spin. I can tell the minute we have a low pressure system off…

Tropical Storms and History

There’s a forecast of Tropical Storm Arthur heading up the East Coast this weekend. All along the coast, from Florida to Maine, is in its path. We get a bit of a blow out of these things. Since it’s just a Tropical Storm, it will probably just blow and rain for a day or so….
