The Compleat Wetlander: The Meaning of Snow

By Jeanne Christie

The main office of the Association of State Wetland Managers is located in Maine – about 15 miles inland from Portland.  As I write this, snow totals locally are around 85 inches for the year.  There is a blizzard forecast for Saturday and another major storm is headed for our area on Wednesday.  Over the past week or two whenever we talk to folks in other parts of the country, they ask about the weather – the snowfall in particular.  So I thought I’d share some images of what it looks like around here.

This week Scientists announced that the universe has no beginning.  As I look out on the deep expanses of snow I reflect on the fact that I am looking at millions of unique individual snowflakes.  Like the universe, the possibilities here on planet earth are endless.
