    When it is 0 degrees F

    Of course we look outside and see the sun is shining. The calm before the storm. Our cats are begging to go outside and normally we would let them. Alas with the windchill it feels more like -30F. Tomorrow there is supposed to be a storm that is taking aim at just where we live. Like a sore thumb the dense part of the storm is poking right across at us. The rest of the state up north where the snow is desired is virtually dry and suffering as their economy thrives on deep snow.

    So I hope where you are it is warmer than what we have now. Here again on Tuesday we are expected to get to a balmy 50F.

    Willy we are predicted to be down to 10 degrees by Sunday morning and back up to 50 by Tuesday. We may have a little snow, ice, and rain Mon. to Tuesday. I wonder how things would have been if the ground hog had not seen his shadow?

    I always wondered about that ground hog. How is that critter expected to not see its shadow with all the glaring tv camera lights making his shadow ever more defined?

    Willy, let us know how the storm goes. I had friends from work go up to Abbott for the long weekend. They'd be awful distressed if they got too snowed in to come back

    Well this storm was more about for whom of where they lived. Here in Sorrento which is north of Bar Harbor. It isnt worth the thought of plowing. Maybe two inches that has been blown about the door yard. However if you lived over to Deer Isle they reported 12 inches fell. Supposedly Rockland also had become hammered. Knox and Waldo counties were hit the hardest (near the coast).

    Thank you. It sounds like you're getting the bands of snow like we've been getting down here. We get 8" one place, and none 3 miles away
