" FROST ADVISORY FOR NORTHERN AND EASTERN MAINE TONIGHT UNTIL 5:00AM EDT
Urgent - Weather Message National Weather Service Caribou ME 330 PM EDT Tue Sep 9 2003 "
There was some killing from last night -- leaves have that 'tinged' or, as the old farmers hereabouts say, "tetched" look to them. And the old saying "Frost on the pumpkin, everyone's ahumpen" only holds true if you live in an old, not insulated, drafty farmhouse, I guess. The newfangled ranch house across the road is totally unaffected -- they didn't even light their stove this morning to take off the chill. Or perhaps they were availing themselves of the climatic inducement.
Anywho, looks like it's going to happen again. Say it isn't so, Farmer John!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
