We're still a few weeks away from peak season, but it's getting closer. If you're headed to the Fryeburg Fair this weekend, a swing on routes 117, 4, 5, and 302 will give you many colors. Still, a run up to Houlton, or the Moosehead region will have the best sights in Maine...
The colors definitely have exploded throughout Maine and 'Moose Nation' has captured them in all their glory. We asked listeners to share, some pics they took this weekend, on our facebook page. Above is a gallery of a few of them. Please feel free to share yours on our facebook page, as well...
As I sat on my deck yesterday, alone and in the quiet, I got melancholy. I took in a deep, cool breath and suddenly got an insatiable urge. No, not to write a poem. To do something else. It is THIS that was the impetus for the latest installment of my alter ego's feature, "The Poetry Man."
Wow, what a weekend. You couldn’t have asked for better weather. On the last weekend of September we get August heat. What did you do? I spend quite a bit of time outdoors either playing of working.
September! It is almost fall in New England. Maine conservation officials say they're expecting a vibrant fall foliage season. So it is time for the weekly fall foliage report. The reports will start on Sept. 10 and run through Oct. 25. So, what to expect…officials say that conditions in northern Maine meant that residents and visitors will likely see subtle color changes and low leaf drop.
Fall is here and the trees are getting colorful. If you want to catch a peek of the peak, the Maine Fall Foliage Reports are back and ready to help you get your leaf peeping on. The color is here and leaves are still on most of the trees, so it looks great. Find the best colors for your weekend road trip.
I love TV. I admit it.
With back to school upon us, now comes my favorite time of the year. The new television season! Things get rolling this this week. Thanks to Hulu and Netflix, I have done an amazing job of watching older shows I have wanted to see, I am looking forward to some new entertainment.
Well, the nights have been pretty chilly since early/mid August and now, although I love the crisp weather, I don't like what it ushers in. I don't like putting away and winterizing the boat and camper. I used the boat four times and didn't spend a single night in the camper. Soon, they'll both covered in a blanket of snow and ice....for almost 9 months! YIKES! That's a long freakin' time!
Now that Labor Day is behind us, it's time to put away the summer things and look forward to fall.
One of the highlights of living in New England in general, and Maine in particular is the beautiful fall foliage that surrounds us each year...
