Our Favorite Season
The weather in Midcoast Maine has been just amazing the last few weeks. We had that hurricane scare a little while back, which turned out to be not much of anything, but since then it's been downright perfect. First it got cold at night. Waking up in the morning with the windows open and being just freezing has felt so good.
And recently we've had some wonderful late-summer thunderstorms. The other morning I woke up with my kids and dog hunkered down in my bed because the house was shaking from the sounds of the thundercrash.
And another great weather feature that we've been experiencing with some frequency — as a byproduct from our thunderstorms — has been rainbows. Here at the Down East offices I've spied three in the last week. On my way out last night I caught this one with my smartphone.
Here's to a wonderful changing of the seasons. I hope you can enjoy it as much as we are.
And, whether you're here or not, don't forget to get out and go apple picking. It's a wonderful way to enjoy the season, support local farmers, and if you have kids, make the oh-so-important connection between food and farms and the seasons.
