It should go without saying that when you come to Maine you need to prepare for the cold. The weather should come as no surprise. Winters are cold. Bring boots. It's my experience that for every 100 miles you travel North of Boston the temperature drops by roughly 10 degrees. Typically, it doesn't matter the time of year. When it's 40 degrees in Boston, it will be 32 in Portland, 22 in Bangor, and Cold as Shit in Aroostook County.
The wind is howling. The dash of our snow-caked automotive traveling machine reads -2. I'm fairly sure that's where she cuts off as the house thermometer shows -10.
