Except for one 24 hour period where the wind chill hit 50 below, this winter in Maine has been very mild. A few light snow storms, some ice and relatively mild temperatures have made things quite pleasant (all things being relative).
The long range forecast seems to be telling us that our good luck is coming to an end and the next few weeks will be more “traditional.” For example we got hit with a six inch snow storm last night and have another one starting in a few hours.
Thus Ingrid (who is on School Vacation) and I decided to hunker down at home and work on a few projects that we’ve been putting off.
The feeders have been quite busy and birds fuel up for the next storm and we’ve had fun watching them from the warmth of our living room.
Attached are some photos.
