Another Storm Day

Here we are at home being "socked in" by a lesser storm than in the past weeks, but still giving us additional accumulation we may not really need at this point! I made this image this morning out the second floor, where we can still see through the windows as they are above the level of the snow. The bay looks as though it is just going out across to the end of the earth!

To New Goucester in the Storm

This past weekend was an adventure as we headed south in the middle of a snowstorm, which is no new thing as we have done much more precarious things in the past. I had rested some from the concussion and am starting to feel slightly like myself again. It was a good weekend with the family and we always enjoy the boys, especially with Emerson becoming so much more interactive and personable!

The first shot here is a macro of one of Jackson's "binkys". I started calling them "chew toys" and Jackson would correct me every time, never succuming to referring to them as I did. He would say "It's called a binky, Grampie!" Here's the shot, you decide.

I was amazed by this second shot, which was a "no look", grab the iPhone from the armrest in the car, flick it on, and hit the shutter button while holding it against the window of the car. Jen pointed out the beauty of it and I was so lucky to get it on such quick notice! It is right after the Penobscot Narrows Bridge headed toward Searsport.
