All day long we were informed about the
Nor'easter that will hit the region on Sunday.
Lots of wind and snow is predicted.
As of today it is sunny, but cold -16°C (3,2 °F). The clouds are not supposed to roll in before evening.
|Rather than to fret about it |
I choose to see the pretty side of this vision. :))
Overnight we got new "curtains" on our
old fashioned windows.
Around noon Molly was getting bored
and I decided that
it was high time to go for a walk.
We walked towards North Road
that runs about 11 meters (12 yards) below our road.
It was all abandoned on this Saturday morning.

The humidity close to the water
brings lots of ice onto all branches.
Molly didn't freeze at all.
She found herself something to chew on.
Sea Smoke, a wintry type of fog,
was drifting in from the sea.
An icy wind blew out of the Northwest.
What a difference just 15 meter (16 yards) in elevation makes.
Down here it on the beach
it was several degrees colder than
at our house.
I stayed long enough to take a good look
at the icy beauty of it.

and west towards Lubec, Maine
Can you even imagine that we had summer
just a few month ago?
That's all for today.
We'll see how the upcoming snowstorm will change
this view in the coming days.....
Bundle up there and keep warm!ReplyDelete
Ah, I remember that type of frost on the windows of our farm house. *shudder*ReplyDelete
I believe it's called a "Nor Easter" because it's a low pressure cell that spins counter clockwise. So even though it's moving up from the south, it's pulling moisture back around from the east, depending on where you are relation to the direction of rotation. Of course, if you're near water, that means lots of moisture to work with, not just what's in the clouds.
Does that make sense?
