We got a few inches of snow before the rain arrived around 3:30 p.m. on Sunday. Hugh got a call from his brother, Bill Lord, on Sunday afternoon. When Hugh told him about our weather and the snow, he said that it was around 80 degrees in Phoenix.
We are still looking for more interesting birds to show up at the feeder. We noticed a flock of Red Polls the other day. Mary Tyler said that she had seen some at her place also.
Our granddaughter, Sidney Chapman, spent last weekend with us. Tim and Michele came to pick her up just as the snowstorm arrived on Sunday morning. Sidney was helping put out Christmas decorations when they arrived.
My brother, Steve McLain, stopped by last Saturday to check out the work that has recently been done on the corner lot. This is the site where the train station will go when it gets here.
Lise McLain reports that her father, Gerard Dupont, is doing well at Ledgeview when she went to visit.
Joe Boudreau was at the town office Tuesday evening and said that his son, Joseph Boudreau II, is engaged to Jennifer Wood. The wedding date is set for Jan. 7, 2011.
Hugh and I were at Rite Aid in Bethel this past weekend and noticed that there were several birds in the trees by Route 2. They were Cedar Waxwings and they were feeding on the berries from the bushes near the road.

Doug Wilson and his crew from D. A. Wilson & Co. from Bethel, Maine arrived last Wednesday to prepare the site for the arrival of the 1851 train station. Along with Doug were Fabian Corriveau, Phil Rolfe and Raymond Buker. They dug the hole for a frost wall and Murch Concrete from Waterford, Maine arrived around 1 p.m. and put in the footings. They came back on Thursday and poured the concrete for the walls.
Ford Reiche arrived just after the D. A. Wilson crew finished digging the hole. It is through the courtesy of the Presumpscot Foundation that Ford established that is making this all happen.
