You are definitely allowed to do so. My only complaint with the Pacific NW was the lack of serious winter, so none of this bothers me.

Anyone who has not lived in Maine for a considerable length of time cannot really understand the realities of living here. Winter starts early. I hope you like reading, watching movies, or drinking heavily because there is little else to do between October 30 and April 30. Cold and cozy is nice for a week or two but when it drags on for three or four months it gets REAL old. Lock yourself in your house for four months and you'll see what I mean. Mainers would make good astronauts on a trip to Mars . We're used to long periods of isolation and boredom.

Does one really have to spend their time indoors during the winter? Aren't there some winter activities to get involved in?

yup its winter and road construction season.

Mind boggling to me in 2011 they cant build a road that can hold up more than a year.... my theory is they can it would just not be very good for job security.

I'm grateful for every single day.... I get tired of the rainy days, especially this past spring, but a reality check brings me back to appreciation. Any day on this side of the ground is a good day. I try really hard not to waste any of them.
