Autumn Finally Arrives

Autumn has finally arrived here firmly in Maine.  We had temps near freezing for a few nights, a wild rain storm which knocked out power, sadly for many, for almost a week.  We were spared I think because we live near our local fire station with it’s marvelous WWII vintage siren to call the volunteers […]
