UPDATE. CURRENT EXPECTED PATH OF ‘HURRICANE LEE.’ The path has shifted slightly eastward and is now expected to pass through Yarmouth, Nova Scotia.
Biggest impact in Maine will be the Downeast Coast.
Wood Prairie Family Farm is located almost 150 miles inland. Our Town of Bridgewater is expected to receive 2+” of rain, sustained winds up to 26 mph and gusts up to 43 mph.
Away from the coast, for most of inland Maine, forecasters are advising Mainers to expect the equivalent of a strong Northeaster (‘Nor’easter’) storm.
In Northern Maine we don’t need more water. Since May 21, with our wet Summer continuing, to date we’ve received over 24.5″ of rain. It takes 14″ to grow a crop of Potatoes.
While Potatoes like water, too much of any good thing becomes a problem.
