The photo below was taken on the morning of 12/16/16 by Bill Kieltyka! The temperature was hovering around minus 5 degrees with a wind chill factor of about minus 25! Darn right that's COLD! And tomorrow the forcast calls for 4-5 inches of snow. Must be winter in Maine!

This gorgeous photo was a Facebook post by Sue Fairfield on September 2, 2016. The caption with the photo read, "Welcoming September on Cobbossee Lake in West Gardiner." Wow!
