And extra warm day when the calendar in Maine says, hey, fall is winding down, dig out your snow shovel. Used the day wisely to wax jeep. Finish mulching leaves at the farm, store another boat in the back shed and to paint parts of the barns needing a coat of white stuff.
Tonight the stars are brilliant and thru out the day the sky was so blue. Maine blue without pollution from smog, contaminants, or lights.
Where you live, do you do things around the weather outside or are there long long stretches of sunshine, no rain or heavy winds or snow to deal with? Or is the humidty so great that working hard to accomplish outside chores is a losing battle with the sweltering heat of the southern climates? Had a native Mainer and his wife, kids move back and found them a home to rent. He is a mason and he said the Florida heat meant electric bills of over $250 a month.
So pick your comfort posion… heating bills or air conditioning bills?
The local area has many snowbirds who leave around Thanksgiving and return the first of May routine. Many head to Florida, the Carolinas but others swerve west for Arizona and the dry climate of the South Western United States or further to places in California. More and more folks are discovering Maine though with 100 cruise ships parked off the coast with over 2000 passengers in each anxious to sample a lobster, see a lighthouse, catch a glimpse of a moose, eat some maine blueberry pie or to just buy a Maine t-shirt.
