Global Warming

Brian and I went to see a multimedia presentation on climate change.  "DJ Spooky" went to Antarctica and recorded ice sounds which he mixed with a score he had composed and pictures of Antarctica and graphs showing how the climate has changed due to carbon dioxide etc.  We noted the irony of seeing a Hummer driving in front of us that had a license plate that said "Icebrg."

Prime Real Estate

This is a trailer park.

Prime real estate up here. 

I'm sorry...this is mean...I just never thought I'd see a trailer referred to as an "estate."  You know what I mean.

Maine runs on Dunkin'....but they don't really know how to spell it...

I thought America ran on Dunkin'...and that Maine was part of America.  So shouldn't Maine know how to spell Dunkin'?  Like when they report the news?

Widespread Panic

I live in Maine.  Maine is cold sometimes.  Maine gets snow sometimes.  Maine gets lots of snow sometimes.  Maine does get storms where more than 12-18 inches are projected.  However, this particular time - and maybe others too and I was simply unaware - people decided to raid the grocery store.  Here is a picture that Brian took when he was at the grocery store:

Ok this was the bread aisle.  I would classify this as overreacting.  However, that in and of itself does not qualify this as something that would happen only in Maine.  The qualifying factor is the fact that the frozen section was empty too.  That's right - the foods that require electricity to store and to prepare - were what people "stocked up on" for the big snow storm that they think will disable their electricity.
