Rough Seas at Portland Headlight

Rough Seas at Portland Headlight


For the third weekend in a row, a large amount of snow is falling in Portland, Maine. While today’s storm is no 31.9″ (a recent record!) storm, the sea at Portland Headlight were certainly active. The snow was heavy and wet, which actually made driving safer. Fort Williams had been recently plowed and sledders were already parking to take advantage of the Sunday storm. I managed to maintain my warranty on my Galaxy S2 while getting a few pictures and videos.

A ship ran aground at this location in 1866 on Christmas Eve; the Annie C. Maguire. The funny thing is, the weather today was substantially worse than it was on the day of the crash. I’ve read that it might have been for the insurance money. But what isn’t, these days.

I really like YouTube’s new video enhancements, so I can remove some of the shaking. It was very cold. The photos came out alright, despite snow blowing in every direction. I’ll include an imgur album link for full resolution versions.
