What 1-3 Inches Looks Like

This is what 1-3 inches of snow looks like in Downeast Maine.


It must be tough to be the weather man.


What I expected to be a “dusting” or even rain turned out to be a 12 inches.


It was a winter wonderland fitting for a Christmas card.


A week of mild temperatures thawed the once frozen pond.


The ducks are such creatures of habit that it was tough to get them to take a dip in the slushy pond – they’re already used to it being a skating rink.


I do think it’s beginning to look a bit like Christmas!

    When we get a forecast of 1-3 inches, it may be a dusting…sigh. Central Va is a Bermuda Triangle of its own!
