Maine neighbors helping neighbors after an ice storm brought the whole town to life during the Christmas season, 2013.

Stormy Weather

The Storm That Binds

The ice and snow froze all below
The heavens sending signs
That Lincolnville had a choice to make;
To yield or face the storm that binds.

The power out, the sun went down
On a quiet, frosty eve.
As people stirred, awoke and became
A town proving they believe.

Doors were opened, fires stoked
Against the bitter cold
Neighbors called their neighbors
Creating wonders to behold;

The Best Christmas Ever at the Shutes,
Lisa’s wood stove warm,
A classic scent; Maine Balsam,
Protecting all from the storm.

Lindsey rescued Leo
No 911 call needed.
The Spirit of Christmas present
Was welcome here and heeded.

Victoria packed her love in snow
Driving roads that froze that night
To spread her joy to family
And warm them with candlelight.

There are many more stories out there
Just waiting to tell the time
When Lincolnville rose up in arms
To embrace the storm that binds.
