Wicked Cold Wintah


It has been so cold here in Maine! I took these pictures yesterday, but forgot what the temp was then. The wind was brutal, as you can see from the flying snow on lake. At the moment it is 5F/-15C, and
tomorrow's low is forecasted to be -18F/-28C. And that is without wind chill factor. Brrrr....!!!!!!


Snow flying on lake.


Beautiful. Freezing cold.


Can't feel my fingers anymore.


Time to head inside!!! Maine sure is wicked cold in the wintah.


Kylymä on talvi täälläkin - Mainen osavaltio on Usan itäisin Kanadan rajalla pohjoisessa, eikä meiltä itse asiassa olekaan pitkä rajalle. Niin on kovat talvipakkaset täällä - aivan kotoisaa, kun Suomeen vertaa, heh. Tuuli puhalsi eilen lunta järven jään päällä. Lapset viihtyivät ulkona yllättävän kauan, minä vain sen verran, että sain valokuvat napsittua. Brrr.....!!!!! Olisikin sauna!


  1. Brrrrrrr. You're making me cold! BUT those photos are so beautiful. Keep warm

  2. Yeah, as beautiful as it is, I'm ready for spring already! LOL

  3. Thank you, Martha! It really is brutally cold.

    Jessy, I don't know if it's as cold where you are in Maine, but this is a bit too much for me - at least to spend time outside.. So glad we are in our warm camp now, instead of the cabin where we were last winter;)

  4. i don't even know what i would do if it was that cold!!!!! we have seen a very small bit of snow this didn't even stick though.

    stay warm! ;)

  5. mountain mama, it has been cold, still. Today -8F. I'm happily gazing at the beautiful scenery from inside the camp:)

  6. I live in Texas where snow is a luxury, so I enjoyed seeing the beautiful pictures!

  7. Thank you, Misty! We did snowmobiling yesterday, so more snow pics to come:)
