The Fall Season
Fall is the best season. There's no reason to bury the lede. It's a season that's so far ahead of the other three that it's practically on a different planet. And in Maine, it's in another solar system.
Being away for college actually made me appreciate the season even more. Having gone to school south of the Mason-Dixon line, I can't say I experienced much of a fall. It was five years of 70-80 degree weather until November. It just didn't even feel like a different season than summer.
Fall in Maine
I have been incredibly lucky to have lived and worked in Maine ever since. Fall in Maine is like nowhere else (especially West Virginia). Crisp mornings, mild days, and cool nights make for the absolute perfect level of comfort. Not to mention that it's sweatshirt weather, which is a true Mainer's uniform.
The foliage is special, the harvest is strong, the baking is exquisite. There's really nothing negative to say about fall in Maine.
I was interested if this was a common belief, which I assumed it was. But, as they say, never assume anything.
