The whole world knows what Maine weather does to our landscape in the fall.
All our seasons have their own inherent beauty, but fall foliage in New England is a show-stopper.
What about a spring weather forecast in Maine? Could be a blizzard, could be a beach day!
I have a child born in April here in York - on her first birthday it was 70F and we all wore shorts and had a picnic outside. On her second birthday, the snow was thigh high...
And I don't care how hot it is down below on the beach or what month it is, if you go on up the Nubble to the lighthouse or to have an ice cream at Brown's, bring a sweater or a jacket. Just in case.
Maine weather is so well known for being capricious that people even write some great jokes about it.
Jeff Foxworthy, for example, is known for his Southern style "you might be a redneck" humor, but he doesn't do half bad with Maine, either!
The following Foxworthy jokes made me laugh because I've done 'em both - more than once! Ready?
If you've ever switched the controls in the car from 'heat' to 'air-conditioning' and back again in the same day, you might live in Maine.
Then there's the great "You know you're in Maine..." series:
You know you're in Maine if, when the sun goes down, you start looking for your coat.
You know you're in Maine if, in March, your vehicle is 43% mud.
You know you're in Maine if you got a set of new snow tires for Valentines day.
Because our day-to-day weather can be so varied, it helps to have a look at the extended forecast when planning your vacation activities.
May the sun shine brightly for you - most of the time!
