Summer arrived last Saturday and we will be enjoying a sunny and warm first full weekend in Maine this weekend. That leads us to our Question Of The Day: What is your favorite season in Maine?

Is it the summer? Summer in Maine with sunshine until 8 p.m., barbecues, time at camp, trips to the beach, boating, fishing. I know it's my favorite time of year!

 

Autumn? Autumn in Maine is magical, the colors, the crispness in the air, apples, cider, hayrides, football. It's hard to beat autumn in

Maine!

 

Winter? If you love to play in the snow, Maine is a great state to live in. Everything from skiing, snowmobiling, ice fishing. The downside is that it gets dark so early, cold weather, and it costs a lot for heat.

Spring? The ray of hope after a long winter (especially this winter!) baseball, picnics, hiking, mud season. Spring in Maine was be everything from an extended winter to an instant summer!
