Not a quiet Winter

wharf in snow

We have not had much snow in Georgetown so far this winter, but last weekend a storm swept through the area and left its mark.  The wharf looks pretty quiet, but there are still a few lobster boats in the harbor, and we have enjoyed some wonderful gatherings with folks from town.   Tomorrow is the monthly community pot luck at the Community Center which is just down the road.   And, the Tuesday night open mic  event has started again at the Robinhood Meeting House.  So, we are not lacking for things to do!

We still go to the beach from time to time – even when it snows…  and so do the crazy surfers!  reid state park winter

It was really cold at the beach –  like  -10  wind chills, but on the way to take this picture, we passed some cars with surfboards laying by them and folks inside trying to warm up.

And, after dreaming about a house in Maine  since we bought land in Phippsburg back in 2014, we decided to bite the bullet and charge forward.    For the past few years, we have been gradually clearing a spot for a house, but  now the big machines have moved in.  It is amazing how much can be done  quickly with the right tools.

if the weather cooperates,  we may have a foundation in before the town closes the roads to heavy vehicles –  an annual event when the ground starts to thaw and the roads begin to heave.  The truck ban can last a month or so.   We have our fingers crossed.    At some point in the future, I will take a picture of the house which should look something like this

we will  see!   keep posted.
