2″ to 4″ of snow are forecast for tomorrow — not exactly a plowable storm, but after I shovel, I will suit up for a little strategic backyard snow operation. There must be something I can do to improve the view from the kitchen until the sun melts the snow piles where the bulbs are planted. Winter still rules in Maine for the foreseeable future.
