All the long-time Maine residents are convinced that we have had a lot of snow this 2014-15 winter It has also been really cold.

This morning, after yet another night of single digit temperatures, this whole end of Casco Bay is frozen over.
Maine continues to show new facets of natural beauty. Seasmoke occurs when the air is very cold, colder than the underlying water. It was about zero Fahrenheit when I took this picture through the window of our bedroom
