I enjoyed it a lot. Portland, Maine too.

IMO the best part of a visit to Portland is the old port. But there is a good food scene sprinkled throughout, so I've heard.

The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our razors, but in our technique.

Thank you all for the kind replies.

Portsmouth is lovely. Lots of great shops and restaurants. I like it more than Portland, ME simply because the shopping and eating places are in a smaller area. In Portland we really had to hoof it. I was exhausted at the end of the day.

Hi Marko. This is ML. I love the snow but would be very upset if it ruined my fall! The only time we got snow in the fall we had a blizzard in October and they had to call in the National Guard because we lost so many trees and they took the power lines with them when they fell. The snow was heavy and the leaves held it similar to your picture. Does that happen to you as well?

Thank you for your kind words! You made my day!

Hi ML, yes we do get that as well.  When the precipitation starts as rain and the leaves are still one the trees and then the temperature drops below freezing the rain on the leaves freezes and makes a great textural surface for the slushy snow to cling to and then as more snow falls the weight overwhelms the trees ability to support it.  We had a catastrophe storm about 7 or 8 years ago in early September and a huge number of trees were destroyed.  I lost 5 out of my own yard alone.  I can recall driving to work 2 days after the storm down tree lined streets of an older neighbourhood.  Not only were there trees down all over the place across cars and the road  making passage difficult but they were still falling.  It was an interesting drive.  Its been a while around here since we've lost transmission lines but there have been instances where not only have the lines come down but they've taken the steel towers with them as well - when one goes down the added weight on the next towers can cause a domino effect with multiple towers going down.  Bad news because that's not a quick fix.  Nature is so beautiful and can assert its power unpredictably.  Our issue with weather here is primarily related to elevation - we're at 3,600 ft. so we're poking out into the coldness of space more than those at lower elevations Smile
