Ground spider nests on a Maine island
Good morning everyone. I think we will finally get some rain this afternoon and over the weekend that we need badly. I apologize to those who are here for a weekend getaway but the stream that our dogs like to wade in is all dried up making it very tough for them to cool off.
A ground spider nest seen up close.
Yesterday morning we awoke to a very thick fog. We could barely see any of the boats around us making it difficult to find shore. I knew the fog would burn off as the sunny blue skies overhead warmed the air temperature above the dew point. I have also learned to look for the signs that nature gives us. One of those signs are the ground spider nests and yesterday they were out in full force. People ask me questions all the time about this, that and the next thing. I can usually pull out (make up) an answer that sounds good out of somewhere. But why ground spider webs… I really don’t know. Does any one out there have any good wild a#@ guesses?? All I really know is that nature’s signs seldom fail me and that the Nile river pilots are often a great source of weather wisdom. “Fog at seven, gone by eleven,” they used to say. Well yesterday the fog didn’t actually clear until 1116. Fog on the Nile must behave a little differently.
I hope you all have a great day. Be well. Do good.
