Some people in Maine think I'm not very spontaneous. Friends in Texas would tell you otherwise.
Mainiacs is a revered term, only given to those who are 5th generation (or more) born in Maine. If you were born in Maine but you are 1st - 4th generation, you're a Mainer. Everyone else is just "a person from away". I came to Maine for "just one semester," but now I'm "tenure track" which means I'm here to stay for a while. As I was in those first few months, I am very excited about this adventure and the chance to meet the great people of Maine.
I went cross country (xc) skiing again tonight! It was a balmy 23 degrees tonight . . . 4 degrees warmer than last night.
UMF is hosting a week of cross country skiing. They got a big trailer full of equipment from some association that promotes winter sports in Maine.
I rejuvenated my blog.
The prediction for tomorrow night is a low of 23 degrees below zero. How cold?? Minus 23.
I'm actually not in Maine right now, but I've been hearing about and reading about a "wicked" snowstorm they're having while I'm gone.
January 8th--an awesome day. Four years ago today, I moved to Maine. Of course, back then, I thought I was only coming for four months.
