What are people saying about the weather?

THE WEATHER REPORT:

Summer is officially here and we saw people out and about enjoying it. 

The nice, warm sun was out with some  clear weather Saturday and Sunday. We had some rain Memorial Day as we honored those who served.

The Farmer's Market in Presque Isle was open this past weekend selling the fresh food we all love. Vendors and shoppers got out and spent time in the mild temps both Saturday and Sunday.

This week looks like scattered rain and thunderstorms Tuesday with conditions clearing on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday have showers possible with the weekend also looking like some rain.

The water cooler talk is about the changes related to vaccinations and getting out and about more as restrictions in Maine have been loosened. This comes at a good time when we all want to go outside and have friends over for a barbeque, games and just plain fun.

It’s also a time to get the chores done. How many times a week do you mow the lawn? Don’t forget about weed whacking. Does your landlord have you do it or is someone hired to take care of it. Let us know in the Facebook comments. Be mindful of ticks and hornets nests when you are doing the job. Wear clothes to protect yourself from ticks and get a good hornet spray to get rid of the nests.

You’ll see on our Facebook, we have info on events happening this year. Some things are dialed down a little as we adjust from the extreme parts of the pandemic. Other things are opening up and allowing for more people to get back to normal this summer.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
