Just along the coast? Where, specifically, is it 10 or more degrees cooler than say Boston?

What is this "heat wave" of Maine? I know of no such thing.

This summer (so far) our area south of Augusta has had one day of 95 degrees, and the rest of the days have usually been in the 80's. Fortunately, it cools down at night (enough to cool the house). If it gets really hot, we swim in the lake. But as someone else pointed out on another thread, Maine has lots of micro climates. One area will get snow, and another area 10 miles away will get all slush.

I regularly (several times per week, at least) compare temps and humidity in multiple areas of Maine, with my area of New York. I think I must be a glutton for punishment. Maine's summer weather is always nicer than mine!

Where are you??

I'm in Southern New England sitting outside with the dog, hot as can be and hoping for another breeze. It was 99 here today, brutal for the past week +.

Northern Maine has perfect summers. When it's iin the 90s in central and southern Maine it is usually 5-10 degrees cooler here and less humidity.

At the bottom of Gulf Hagas and if you want it really cold, try the ice caves near Allagash Lake. They say the ice isn't any good in there until it's more than two years old. Yessuh.

Find yourself a nice ocean breeze on shore or go out in a boat. Honestly, I think you should chart the daily highs and lows for Boston and also choose several towns/cities in Maine from now until the time you move. Don't forget the wind chill.

I love American girl's response about the fleece sweater. (tried to rep, but gotta spread it around) A friend has been visiting and has put on a fleece jacket also. My toes are a little chilly sitting here with the windows open in Ellsworth and I'm not on a lake. Maine has perfect natural AC.
