54 Degree Heat Wave and Wolfe's Neck

Wolfe's Neck
Yesterday, it seemed like summer in Portland. People were out in shorts, t-shirts, and sandals. The thermometer read 54 degrees (12 C), and in Maine that constitutes a heat wave, at least in the month of March.


Wolfe's Neck
In California, 54 degrees means winter. People bundle up, wear gloves, and don fur lined hats.

Today, the temperature in Portland reached a sweltering 65 degrees (18 C). You can use your imagination of what happened.

BTW: If you're in the Portland area, I would recommend a trip to Wolfe's Neck Woods State Park. It's about 25 minutes north of Portland and just outside of Freeport. A great place to wander and enjoy spectacular ocean views.
