8 Signs It’s Almost Winter in Maine
Winter is coming. And there are some sure signs that it's about to arrive in Maine.
I'm not looking forward to snow or extreme cold or planning my life around weather patterns. I'm still clutching the last shreds of Fall (and ever summer, let's be real) as winter creeps in little by little. Still, I can't ignore that winter is coming, especially with all of these not-so-subtle signs reminding me at every turn.
What other signs remind you that it's almost winter in Maine?
Actually, it's been there since last winter and you kept reminding yourself to take it out. Now you're ahead of the game because it's already there. Good job, self.
Time to switch to Country Crock! Nothing ruins a morning quite like trying to spread cold butter on a slice of toast. Might as well rip a big hole in the middle of your bread to save yourself some time.
This is a job for a light fall jacket! Your super puffy, arctic rated, down-alternative abominable snowman suit is still tucked away for when it really gets cold.
It hasn't even snowed yet and your dog is just like, "Nope, I'll poop right here, thank you!"
It's the early season equivalent of putting your beer on the back porch to free up space in the refrigerator. Forget your restaurant doggy bag in the front seat? No worries! Eat that leftover burrito on your way to work. Breakfast on the go!
Ladies, you've actually resorted to shaving your legs as an excuse to stay under the hot water a little longer.
Just like the ice scraper in your trunk, your ice fishing flags are probably still there from last year. Your father or brother with a camp up North probably calls you once a week with an ice report, "2 inches so far... Should be on the ice on New Years Day."
