Selling Real Estate Where Yes, Winter Snow Happens In One Of Our Four Seasons.

If you never lived in the Northeast, how would you know what the word Maine winter, the season is really all about?

Ifshoveling colorado a basin ski area snow you had never driven in snow, fear of the unknown might be a simple knee jerk reaction. A worry you develop from never having tried it. Or learning it's not as bad as the media hype.

I live in Maine, and weather gets asked about. Not by folks who have snowsledded, down hill skiied in Maine.

Or those that like to ice fish, play pond hockey or snowshoe already know winter in Maine is a very good thing.

Roads are plowed by folks with the equipment, the experience.

And our lower population means not having to plow around inexperienced drivers causing accidents from not drive time with white stuff.

Snow in Maine, many other northern or mountainous states means winter. Which tranlates in to major outdoor recreational fun. Not hibernation.

Not being on house arrest indoor for months while cabin fever builds. The highways weaving in and around the Rockies are way way harder to negotiate if the weather goes back. We are gently, rolling in Maine for the most part.

But lots of areas in the country get snow. Like this image of a fellow at Arapahoe (A Basin) ski area in Colorado illustrates. Winter snow, not a dirty, fighting words and one of four special seasons in Maine

Kristine .. when you like outdoor winter recreation snow is excited. If you don't have snow in your diet or have not tried the winter recreation, you could think what is wrong with these snow flake loving people?

Chris .. this guy was a worker though, I have shoveled off lots of lake camps, walk ways and office entries over the years. As we skiied this guy never let up. Had his harness on too.

Roy .. came back to Maine with less snow and smells like spring is coming with your flower bed delivery.

Hi Andrew - Happy Spring!!!

In Toronto, aside from the same four seasons that you have in Maine, we also divide the year into two seaons (a) winter and (b) construction season.  Construction season is when the road construction workers reconstruct / repave roads etc.  Right now, the crews are out filling tens of thousands of potholes that appear during the spring thaw.

Marc ... light snow today and catching up on inside work. We have four seasons but to someone that has never had snow, their imaginations can run wild about dogsleds and igloos.
