Humor columnist Dave Barry once suggested that Maine’s state motto should be changed to “Cold, but damp,” thereby emphasizing its two primary qualities. That’s cute, but it’s also sort of true. Spring here tends to last just a few days or weeks (in its place, Mainers refer to “mud season,” the period from, say, mid-March to June); November features bitter winds alternating with gray sheets of rain; and the long winters often bring a mix of blizzards and ice storms.
