What if I beg?

Please, snow gods if you can hear me...

Some normal winter weather, you know temps that stay below freezing and some snow? I'm not asking for a lot, just what usually expected in Maine at this point in the year...

Yeah, I know, it's not going to help, but maybe mother nature reads this page...

I hope to have some new house pictures up tonight so stay tuned and think snow!

First Snow plea of 2006!

I'm starting to wonder when winter is going to start...

Here we are in the second week of January and the weather man tells me that by the middle of the week we could hit 40 degrees! I guess this could be our "January Thaw" but we really haven't had a freeze yet (it's yet to dip below 0 in the Mid-Coast this winter).

I'm not asking for brutally cold weather and blizzards every week here, but temps in the twenty's and good storm to get a base going would be nice.

Heck, I haven't even started my machine this year!

The Bou 2005

BJ, Heidi, Lynelle and I (yeah, I was the only guy...) went to Caribou last week to hit some of those dreamy County trails. We got off to a slow start but that's part of the game. One hair dryer, a bottle of dry gas, and a lot of pulling later we were of heading towards Limestone. We ended up on the "Border Trail" which is a section of ITS 81 that runs on the border between Canada and Maine.

It was the girls first time seeing it, so that was fun. We ended up turning around and heading back to BJ's folks house shortly after since it was getting late in the day. 40 miles in a few hours, not to bad.

The next day we took off in the morning for our "long trip" which brought us through Van Buren, up to Long Lake (St. Agatha) where we ate, then back down through New Sweden and then back to Caribou which ended up being 115 miles.

And just to prove we were there:

It was a great time. It kind of spoils you, but once or twice a year it's nice to get away.

I'm dreaming of a white, um, winter....

Another wintery mess tonight...snow, sleet and freezing rain, Yuck!

Right now I'm dreaming of sub 32 temps, and a abundant amount of that white stuff. I know it's selfish, but that T660 is calling my name, and you have to admit that a white blanket looks much nicer then brown and safe ice on the lakes makes for a much more enjoyable winter, right?

Not to mention it's Maine, and it suppose to snow up here!

My roof is one section of cap away from being done, so don't be startled if you hear my whistling "let it snow, let it snow, let it snow..."

Happy New Year everyone!
