MAINE MELTS

Just when I thought that spring was around the bend, a heavy wet snow fall visited us on Thursday through Friday. Around Friday afternoon, when we began our spring break trip to Maine, fog and snowy roads greeted us.

Winter again
The interstate looked like a sorry mess early in the afternoon. Nobody expected the storm to last that long. The road cleanup crew had a difficult time clearing the road.

Fortunately, the weather got better as we moved north and when we got to Maine, we were met with blue skies.

The fields were  showing  bigger patches of golden grass by the day.

The pigeons are exalting.

The cattle are back to grazing –

and we are, in the mud, squishing.  But spring is coming! 🙂

Thank you for coming by.  🙂

  1. Wow! I’m so glad you made it out of the snow, and are finding the signs of Spring! Spring gives you hope, and encourages you to keep pressing on, just like you did in your walk! Beautiful pictures, and I really liked the one of the deer! Have a wonderful day and enjoy the sunshine!

  2. I love that first photo. I had to stop and stare at it for a bit (I think I was hoping that if I looked long enough I might feel that chill…it’s been 90 degrees here for two days and I refuse to turn on our air conditioning until April :)) Maine really is a pretty state. Maybe I’ll actually get to see it one day…but until then, I’ll see it through your photos!
