Tornadoes no doubt predate what we now refer to as Massachusetts on the North American continent, but the first "whirl-wind," as they were called back in the day, was recorded right here in Massachusetts.
March in Maine. I love that every one this past week was acting like winter was over. The above-average temperatures certainly helped. But PEOPLE! Do you FORGET? It's not Spring until maybe late May. At the EARLIEST. I swear, the summer is so perfect here in Maine that it somehow wipes out our memory (like that cool memory stick light thing from Men in Black), and we forget how horrible the weather can be this time of year.
