I have been ignoring this for a while and just to update that we are still here and winter was upon us in full force a few weeks ago. We’ve had close to 30″ of snow so far this winter and Scout is in heaven eating as much as he can get into his mouth.

This week marked the 10th anniversary of the Great Ice Storm of 1998 and the temp today is in the mid 50’s. Maybe it’s really global warming? Anyway, it looked like we lost about 3 inches of snow depth over night and if this keeps up we will be into full on mud season. Something that I want to avoid as long a possible.

It’s been a lazy couple of days here in Maine. We got hammered by an April nor’easter that was pretty interesting. Trees down, lots and lots of rain, and heavy winds yesterday some in the 40-50 mph range. Scout and I just hung out. I was sick so didn’t do too much and he was happy to just lie on the bed with me and sleep most of the time. We did venture out a few times since someone needs to relieve himself outside, grateful for that 😉 He would just stand there and point his face into the wind and inhale deeply. It was quite interesting to watch him try to get the scent of something, no idea what though. The walks were brief and fast since it was cold and wet for me, he didn’t care in the slightest, that’s a dog for you. The two photos are a very large tree branch that came down on the neighbors utility wires and is still there 2 days later (close to 100,000 still without power as of this afternoon). The other photo is of our back yard, apparently we have waterfront property, shhh don’ t tell the state or they will raise our taxes. It might be a bad mosquito season again if we can get past the mud season.

I am learning how to customize this s-l-o-w-l-y.

This morning I managed to change the header above to make it more ours and hopefully more enhancements will come.  I have also set up a photo gallery at to host the photos.  It’s still in the testing phase but feel free to look about.  I hope to eventually integrate the two sites together.
