This is the city. Glenburn.

The Degree Confluence Project has a goal to visit each of the latitude and longitude integer degree intersections in the world, and to take pictures at each location. It was started in 1996 by a guy who just bought a GPS and didn’t know what to do with it. Now there are over 30,000 photos of these places where the longitude and latitude meet. You can spend hours just browsing the pics, but it’s also fun to read the stories of how people got to them — especially if, like the one for 45 N 69 W in Maine, it’s by a guy who’s traveling around an area he doesn’t know very well, but you do.

    I like the way the tornado neatly cut the trees… 🙂

    I wonder if that was the Great Northern Pulp and Paper tornado, or the Champion Paper Products tornado….

    There actually was a small tornado sighted in Aroostook County last year, the first time in my (shorter than Solonor’s) life span that I recall hearing of one in Maine. (That day is coming right along now, isn’t it Solly?)

    That does sound interesting! I wonder if they’ve been talking about it in the geocaching forums. I’m going to have to investigate!

    I remember there was a tornado near Newport (Maine) about 22 years ago. I remember driving past a bunch of knocked down trees that were in it’s path.

    On a slightly different but same topic. We’ve had six tornados this spring in the Portland, Oregon area. That’s way above the average of one a year for the whole state. Weird weather.
