Bitter cold in Maine today. At first blush, it was -1 degree as I was driving into Portland. On mornings like this the smoke from all the churning furnaces drifts straight up into the lightening sky. Objects appear sparkly as the sun rises higher illuminating the frost.
Up on Munjoy Hill, the distant water is a cold steel blue.
The sun is bright but there is no hint of warmth.
At least not yet.
