    Clear skies offer opportunity to see 5 planets at the same time right into February

    Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are aligning for the first time in over a decade. While you need to get out of the house to see the show, being outside won’t be very cold, especially now, when New England has a January thaw underway. Highs over the next week will average well above normal. The planets are best viewed from an area with darker skies and, if you live […]

    An entire season of snow – and then some – for Washington, D.C., but none for Maine

    The bottom line with the upcoming storm is it is going to impact the mid-Atlantic region in perhaps an historical way, while here Maine we will see nothing more than some clouds. It’s amazing how big this storm is forecast to be in the Washington, D.C., area and even close to New York City, but the trend over the past day has been to keep this storm far to the […]

    Cold continues into the weekend, but storm still questionable

    Dry and cold weather continues for the balance of the work week, but there is still a small risk for some snow this weekend along the coast and mainly over southern Maine. Let’s chat about the cold first. Wednesday will certainly feel cold once again. When you combine the wind and the cold, the real feel temperatures will be in the single numbers below zero at times. This cold isn’t […]

    Brace for cold, wind and watch out for possible weekend storm

    Over the weekend I wanted to take a drive to get some lunch. Since it had been snowing, I asked my neighbor how the roads were. She said if you are true Mainer, they are fine. While I don’t like to take risks driving if I don’t need to, her point about living in Maine was made – snow and cold are part of winter. This week, cold and wind are the […]

    Complex winter storm will bring mixed bag of weather to Maine Saturday

    In the summer there’s always a week of very hot weather, usually in July, but sometimes in August. In a typical winter there’s always a week or two of cold. It often comes in January, but sometimes waits till February. Next week, I see the coldest air of the season so far coming to Maine. Before it gets here we will experience two precipitation events. The first will be a […]

    Thundersnow brings pockets of heavy snow to southern Maine

    A moderate snowstorm blew in an out of southern Maine last evening and by the time it was done several areas had received 5-10 inches of fresh snow. This was more than was expected, especially south of Augusta. These reports will be updated later today. The atmosphere was charged up with a lot of energy last night and this helped produced thundersnow. Thundersnow isn’t unique, but certainly more common in […]

    Light to moderate snowfall across southern and central Maine Tuesday evening

    A more active weather is underway with two chance of snow between Tuesday and Martin Luther King Weekend. There is a storm system moving across the Ohio Valley that will then redevelop as it passes over Maine Tuesday night and into eastern Canada. These situations are very tricky. The speed at which this storm intensifies will ultimately determine where the heaviest snow occurs. If the low pressure area moves faster […]

    “When We Were the Kennedys” an eloquent Maine memoir

    Franco-Americans will identify with this excellent Maine memoir. I loved reading this book! This enjoyable first person family story gives soul to a very small Maine mill town where Oxford Paper ruled nearly every aspect of life and death, in daily lives.  There is lasting value in this well written history, “When We Were the Kennedys”, is Maine writer Monica Wood’s uplifting memoir, describing a difficult time in her own […]
