Well, first and foremost a fond Happy Birthday to a National Park we have visited 11-times (and counting).

Debatable as to what was the more significant centennial — the one in July 2016 when it became a National Monument or toady, when it was upgraded to a National Park.

The ‘Park’ itself commemorated the 2016 birthday. That made sense. Becoming a National Monument meant that it got ‘National’ status and protection. Plus, it was in July which made it a great time to celebrate. A bit difficult to have a birthday celebration in Acadia at the end of February.

But, let’s mark both.

Can You Tell Which One Of These Drives Is Hand Shoveled & Which Ones Belong To Snowblower Owners?

by Anura Guruge






Yes, I know it is a bit hard for the uninitiated. But, this was today, just after 11am.

Last night’s snow storm. Wasn’t too bad. 2-hour school delay.

So, have you worked out which is which?

These are adjacent drives, i.e., next door or across the road.

Well, I am sure some of you will work it out.
