    Is anyone else feeling the tropic air? We have only SMALL snowbanks left now... and we originally had 3 inches of snow earlier.... in fact, there was even slush on driveways and sidewalks. Now it's like 50's or 60's outside. WARM!

    Not bad.

    Way to warm yesterday and even today here in Casco, Maine.
    Ole Jim is right about the storms we used to get, I remember growing up in the 70's in Litchfield (20 minutes South of Augusta) we used to be trick or treating with snow on the ground. Those days are gone for a long time. Thanks to global warming, if you believe it.

    We get snow in NH every October, except this year. Last year, even the town was plowing in early October.
