Where winter and spring collide…

(Mar 4 12:03 p.m.)

Heading into late winter, some sprouts and buds have been popping up in Maine.

(Mar 4 12:01 p.m.)

…All of which are now, I’m sure, under a coating of snow.

(Mar 7 5:40 p.m.)

And I’m sure it’s worse in other parts of the northeast.  “Thundersnow” — a combination of a thunderstorm and a blizzard.  Reportedly, there are of tens of thousands without power for a week, in winter (cold) weather.  (But I can’t imagine it being nearly as bad as what Puerto Rico continues to go through.) …But here?

(Mar 7 2:45 p.m.)

“Meh.”

It’s expected to snow for another three days, but the weather around these parts has always been relatively mild.  We’ll manage.  So rather than continue on the precipitation, I’ll share some new photos on the season so far.

Snow and slush season…

(Feb 25 10:11 a.m.)
(Feb 25 10:16 a.m.)
(Feb 28 12:01 p.m.)

…began to turn into mud season.

Submerged cone. (Mar 1 2:54 p.m.)
(Mar 2 12:33 p.m.)

Receding snowbanks, despite a “dusting” of snow.

(Mar 5 2:43 p.m.)
(Mar 3 2:53 p.m.)

Some days had strong winds.

(Mar 5 1:48 p.m.)

One day, in particular, featured high tides and a wind chill so cold the right side of my face was freezing.  That is, before I turned back — cut my walk short, and it became the left side of my face that was freezing.

Back Cove. (Mar 2 12:33 p.m.)

Before the harsh winds, the dogs were out.

(Mar 1 3:36 p.m.)
Commuter Student Association“. And some free trail mix with coconut shreds. (Mar 1 2:50 p.m.)
(Mar 4 10:37 a.m.)

The houseplant can tell spring is ahead… before this week’s snow, anyway; there may not be as much sunlight.

(Mar 4 2:45 p.m.)

And all the chocolate bunnies tell us that Easter season is upon us.

(Mar 3 2:56 p.m.)

And St. Patrick’s Day.  Lots of green beer.

On the road again. (Mar 4 3:31 p.m.)

It’ll still be a while before the snow’s entirely gone.

(3:24 p.m.)

For my birthday, we went to Uno Pizzeria & Grill.

(3:43 p.m.)

I tried the Numero Uno®.  (Thumbs up from me. 👍)

Well, that’s it for now.  Things are moving along, little by little.  And part of what is going to make things work is regularly going to sleep at night (instead of any time of day).  So, with that and the fact that it’s now past midnight, I shall call it a night.

Until next time…

Ever wondered what’s underneath a birdbath?  An “Assorted Stained Birdbaths” UPC. (Mar 3 2:52 p.m.)
