Another big storm is bearing down on us. Some of you may remember the (rain and wind) storm we in Maine had at the end of October that knocked out power—and more importantly as far as the blog goes, our internet access— for over a week. Well, it’s now two days before posting of my blog and the snow has already accumulated a few inches since 7am with a 12 inch total and potential wind gusts of 50mph predicted. We’re thinking about the trees and branches that are still (since October) precariously leaning over power lines up and down our one-road town and preparing for another bout of power and internet loss.
If I actually had the blog ready to go, well, we might send it now. However, that’s not the case. So… in the event we are unable to get the usual weekly blog out, I thought I’d drop you a note right now, today, which you can flag and save for Saturday morning (or whenever you’d usually get it) if you want, to peruse in your jammies with a cuppa in hand.
Tom has pulled together some of our recent wintertime photos below to share with you and plans to take a video of my snow-day commute to my studio, where I’ll get back to writing Saturday’s post. We figure that the preparation we take toward losing power, will actually be like insurance. Whenever we fill up the gas tanks for the generator, or now that I’m sending out this blog note, it’ll insure that we coast through the storm easy-peasy. Meaning, more than likely, you will get your regular blog post from me on Saturday.
Now, time to bundle up for the 30 feet to my studio and to get back to work. Happy New Year! And Happy Snow Day from Maine!
Below is my “commute” to work: thirty feet from the house to the studio.
