This morning was crystal clear with a couple of inches of freshly fallen snow and the bluest skies you could ever imagine. To take advantage of the beautiful conditions, we hopped in the car and visited our favorite local place for a short winter hike… the Bangor Forest.
We are bracing for what looks like being a nasty storm blowing in on Tuesday afternoon. Here in Maine we are used to pretty much any amount of snow, but when we get a mix of snow, ice, and rain together… that usually spells trouble. We are keeping our fingers crossed that the weather forecasters are only doing what they always do… scaring us into believing we should be watching their channel every minute for updates. It remains to be seen just how bad the weather will be this week, but today we certainly enjoyed the calm before the storm.
