OK--this has been a long, cold winter here in Maine, and while it has gotten SLIGHTLY warmer (and that's a relative term), you have to be getting sick of the cold, ice and snow right about now!

Sure, the first snow is kind of fun, and it's always nice to have snow for the holidays, but now that we're coming into February, it seems like there is no end in sight. At the risk of depressing you, here are some photos of what we've had to put up with this winter...

Wouldn't you rather have this???

Hard Rock Riviera Hotel Maya in Mexico

And hang with these cool people?

Well you can if you head on down to Mexico for Tropical Nights: Boots In The Sand!

It's a five-day, four-night all-inclusive country music dream getaway to the oceanfront Hard Rock Riviera Hotel Maya in Mexico. From February 23 to 27th, you’ll be hangin’ at world class restaurants and beachside cabanas and to put the icing on the cake, you'll have a prime seat for Tropical Nights: Boots In The Sand concerts watching as Dierks Bentley, Billy Currington, Brantley Gilbert and Jana Kramer rock the stage each night!

After all--it's February in Maine...wouldn't you love to escape from this:
