It was mostly T-shirt weather here today. I wore a raincoat as I was mostly underneath the eave drip-line. So I was being dripped on a lot. Though I was very sweaty.
ugh...that sounds miserable.

I was in Waterville today with just a light sweater.

2 to 3 weeks of shorts weather? Damn I must have missed that memo. Been wearing shorts every year for the last 20 years in Caribou for 4 full months, some years 5 full months. Crap that means I have to start wearing jeans whenever it is below 80 then, because we always get 2 or 3 weeks that are above 80-85 every year.

My work schedule definitely needs some fine tuning. Last Thursday our coldest day this year, I'm on a ladder repairing ice damage on a roof and siding. Today, I'm gutting a 2nd apartment in jeans and a tee shirt and sweating up a storm. Feels really nice to step out on the deck and soak up some sun.
Still.......I say - Let it snow! We'll have plenty of time for temps in the 50's come spring time.

Not as hot as Texas? Are you kidding me???? What was I thinking......some people's word I've learned to take with a grain of salt - others, I've learned to just roll my eyes at!

I know where you are coming from bignhfamily. Last week when it was -26 I was out changing a meter bank on an apartment building. This week I'm doing a load of outside work while it is nice and sweating buckets because it is so much warmer than it has been. Sometimes I wonder about the profession I have chosen.

hmm,

Some folks insist that Maine is cold and snowy 9 months of each year, then you go and say that summer and fall get hot.

3 months of summer, 3 months of fall; so even it snows on the first day of winter, and keeps snowing until the last day of spring. You would still only get 6 months of snow, and 6 months of hot.

I am just confused

I am old enough to remember when apprentices were warned to not wear a tie when operating a lathe...
