The cold immobilizes me. I attempt to turn into a turtle by loading up on clothes and hiding under a blanket. I don’t get much done, and my mood suffers. This little break from the wet, the cold, the rain, the dark that we have been having for days, really rejuvenated me.
We were all wearing multiple layers this morning. It takes a lot for Jeramy to feel cold and even he had a sweater on over his t-shirt. Once the sun arrived, it heated the Earth just enough that we ended up shedding our hoodies and scarves to avoid roasting.
I drove past the waterfalls today, they were rushing and roaring, the river was so high. They were saying on the news that a little more rain might flood many areas. Roads were already closed in some places.
Hopefully, the sunshine and warmer temperatures will return tomorrow and we can get out into nature for a while. I am sure Simon has had cabin fever, and our outing to music class was one that he sorely needed. He danced more than he ever has in front of people, so he must have had a lot of pent-up energy waiting to get out.
If you want to see our waterfall in action, watch this video. Keep in mind it is normally a steady trickle, peeping out here and there between the rocks, with a calm river.
That’s Maine for you though, a taste of winter in June.
“Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right” ~The Beatles
