RARE SUPER "PERIGEE MOON" OVER LINCOLN

HISTORIC PROBABILITY OF A WHITE CHRISTMAS
90 to 110 inches of snow can fall each year in the Lincoln area. Up to 30 days per year will see at least an inch of snow. The chances of a "white" Christmas in Lincoln (according to the NOAA) is 50-75%. A "white" Christmas means having at least 1" of snow on the ground on Christmas morning. Severe weather conditions are rare, but we do experience thunderstorms (about 15 per year), heavy rain and blizzards on occasion, depending on the season. Tornados are almost unheard of, although many people say one passed through Lincoln in the early evening of August 7, 2006. A picture of some of the damage from that alleged tornado can be seen here.
The date of Mattanawcook Lake being ice-free is the subject of much speculation in late winter and early spring here in the Lincoln area. Mattanawcook Lake was ice free on March 29, 2006, beating by 5 days the previous earliest date of April 2, 1981.
Once in awhile, this sort of thing happens, too . . .

Seasonal differences make the area interesting!
Lupine adds a little color to the area in early summer.
Looking upriver from the bridge that crosses the Penobscot on the way to Interstate 95. This river has some of the best smallmouth bass fishing to be found anywhere. Fishermen can often be seen on this part of the river. Hidden in the trees at the end of the island in the center of the photo, there is a bald eagle nest. The eagles are quite a sight as they do a little fishing of their own!
WIND CHILL -22 & GOING DOWN!!

The probability of a white Christmas in Lincoln is between 50-75%. Doesn't really matter though, Santa always finds a way to get here!For those of you who live in warmer climates, you may wonder how we cope with the cold winters. We have an efficient public works department (thanks, guys!), so the roads are quickly plowed and sanded after a storm. We just put on our winter coats and mittens when we go outside. Besides, if you've never played in the snow you don't know what you're missing!
