For many, fall is Maine's most beautiful season. The bugs are gone, the sun is warm, and the foliage is glorious.

Late summer and fall are also the season of hurricanes in Maine. Coastal storms can be violent as well. And remember, one of the worst floods ever in southern Maine happened in October of 1996.

We offer hurricane and coastal storm safety here, but please revisit Summer (how we wish we could). And although it doesn't seem possible, winter winds are just around the corner.
