Major Nor’easter hits Georgetown

Rocks at Half-mile Beach

Mid-coast Maine was hit in late February with a serious winter storm, one of the worst in recent memory. Wind gusts along the coast were clocked at over 60 miles per hour, many trees were downed (including several pines in the woods around Coveside) and power was out in parts of Georgetown for as long as four days. We blessed the fact that we had a generator! During the storm, the wind howled and rain (6 inches in 24 hours) flew horizontally at the house. We have a new appreciation for those enduring hurricanes.

The waves at Reid State Park, even a couple of days later, were spectacular. Fortunately, unlike the situation at Popham State Park, the beach — while full of debris — was left intact.
