No sun in the eyes this morning, rain overnight appears to have let up, but lots of dark clouds to give rain at a moments notice. Easterly 15-20KPH, gradual swing to the south, with westerly giving clearing skies later tonight or tomorrow. Temp a nice 16C, will make it to near 20C as the day moves along, next couple of days nice with Sunday a return of the moisture.

We have had nothing like the amount of rain folks in southern and northern Maine had dropped on them. Appears the system tracked more inland as it made it along the coast, best we had was an moderate amount of rain, needed to some extent, but will put up with the sun when it shows up again.

The Official Opening of the new marine facilities at Seal Cove on the go for this afternoon, a grand facility it is, a great asset to the Fishing and Aquaculture Industries, certainly a location pleasure craft of all sizes can utilize at anytime of the year.

Mornin David, haven't been around the shore to see if we have any moustache on the beach, was a draft easterly just after daylight, now calm, and sky beginning to lighten up. Didn't have any run on the shore infront of our place, suspect the swell hasn't made it this far or may have avoided it all together.

Will look for a wind critter, I have used fireworks to get them airborne, doesn't take them long to recognize if my truck not in the yard they are good to go. The are getting further up on the lawn closer to the house, Emily has a new pup, once he is outside he enjoys frolicking in the mess they leave behind. He will chase them first, but is quick to locate what they have left behind, not good.

No idea of what the fishing world is looking like, haven't tripped over Tony for quite awhile, he is busy working in his trap yard, and they are enjoying company from Florida this past week or so.

Emily has been doing her thing with crab and lobster, the company is expanding capacity expect to be ready to be up and running by opening of the fall season.

Enjoy a quiet day ashore.

Mornin KENNEBUNKER, the extremes in the weather you folks didn't make it this far, near noon now, just overcast with a hint the rain may return, but things not bad at all, especially hearing what went just a bit down the coast. Looking to improve for the next couple of days then moisture once again.

Can't recall ever hearing that Portland area was susceptible to flooding, but when it comes at you at that rate pretty difficult to get rid of it before it does cause a problem.

Have a good one.

Morning,
A bit blustery, rainy and a sea rolling in with not a boat from the co-op out to haul. That is a rare occurance.

A news article on WABI, channel 5 out of Bangor for us, last night made me think of you and your geese. In Skowhegan they have a small river side park that the geese were fouling to the point of making it not usable. They put in a full size plastic replica of a fox which moved in wind. It was mounted on some sort of spring anchor. It seems to be keeping the geese at bay.
