When I used oil as my primary source of heat, I used to think that we couldn't turn the furnace on until Columbus Day Weekend. Now that we have a pellet stove I have had it on 3 times already this year. It's probably going on tonight, as the National Weather Service in Caribou has issued a Frost Warning for Coastal Hancock and Coastal Washington Counties including the cities and towns of Ellsworth, Bar Harbor, Blue Hill, Eastport, Machias and Cherryfield.

A Frost Warning remains in effect from 3 AM to 8 AM Sunday, as temperatures are expected to fall in the mid 30's.
