Grand Lake Stream

Dave McCullough

What a cold snap! The thermometer in Grand Lake Stream was reported by some folks to be as low as 18 degrees below zero! The stacks of firewood in people’s yards are shrinking at a rapid rate.  It certainly is in my yard. I still love to live in Maine and to have a more traditional Maine winter!

Happy New Year! The Passamaquoddy people have a tradition for the new year.  It involves asking for forgiveness for any wrong  caused, or words spoken that have hurt towards someone.  Bad feelings are disbursed, and the new year can commence with a clean slate.  This happens to be one of my favorite traditions.
