Snow and wind and its been cold
In the last post I noted that the weather forecast was for snow overnight. Well we did wake up to snow, the wet slushy type, about an inch had fallen. It was also windy and chilly, a tad above zero. This weather was a bit unexpected to say the least. First winter storms tend to commence here towards the end of November, not the start. It’s all an experience!
So we departed Bar Harbor for Portland and as we moved further inland and to higher altitudes the snow intensified, the wind blowing it around. Snow ploughs were out in force clearing the roads. Speed signs said no faster than 45 mph. Nonetheless we counted 8 cars that had slid off down into the ditches, to await recovery.
It was consequently a slow trip down to Portland where we will be based for the next 3 nights.
