Maine stinks

I've been known to say things like this on these forums in an attempt to keep people away , but I'm starting to mean it.

This past week:



Next week:



We got out today for about 2 hours before the pea soup rolled in.

I will gladly take your rain. We are in a drought and have hit 104 yesterday and today and it is only June. This is ridiculous. We are so dry here we have an aerial fireworks ban until at least July 6, so no fireworks on the 4 th.

Most of the east coast has had "showers likely" or "thurnderstorms likely" for the past month or longer. Yeah, sometimes the wx sx for sailing. So you go out to the boat with a good book and a good bottle, and wake up dry and refreshed the next morning.

It's winter here and we are in serious drought. It was like a spring day here. Sun was out, I was in short sleeved shirt.

If things don't drastically change it's going to be grim over our summer.
