So a lot of the talk this weekend is of winter storm Regis, currently near the Carolinas, due to come up the coast and arrive in northern New England Sunday night into Monday. The track currently has it hugging the coast and the center of this storm may be far enough out to sea to spare the majority of southern Maine and most of northern Maine to a dusting through a couple of inches.. As currently projected, the coast could receive 6″ or more. The eastern coast of Maine northeast – downeast from Rockland – is currently projected to get the most of the white stuff at current track, with our Maine Lakes Region due to see a coating to 2″. There is a chance this may remain the winter that never was for many, and even if it does accumulate here, we can all be thankful that the duration will be brief.  Here is what things look like as of early this weekend:


And for those of you paying attention this weekend, even if this storm does irritate us Monday and during the early part of this coming week, what started out as Winter Storm Regis will not arrive until it is officially Spring here!  EST spring arrives Sunday around 12:30am with the majority of the country seeing this earliest spring in our lifetime – since the late 1800’s – arrive Saturday.  Here are some interesting facts this early Spring compliments of the Farmers Almanac:

So whatever happens early this upcoming week, let’s enjoy the fact that  I suggest this WILL be the Winter that never was.. Regardless of what happens this week.. Because it will take place only after the spring of 2016 has officially sprung!   Make it a great week, and the best way to do that is not to put off anything you might need to do with real estate here in the Maine Lakes Region by calling us at Anne Plummer & Associates today!
