Sure it's going to be in the 70's this weekend. Days like this make it difficult to realize that Maine will soon look like this

Studded snow tires may be used on your vehicles from October 1st through April 30th. Now is the time to call your tire dealer or garage and get the snow tires put on your vehicle BEFORE it snows! Don't be one of the drivers that call for your snow tire appointment when we have 5 inches of snow and you can't get up the hill and are sliding all around being a danger to yourself and others! It's time to do it now, before it snows and appointments are available.

Oh, and while we are nagging you about your snow tires, have you had your snowblower serviced for the winter? Your back will thank you and your neighbor's ear will too when you aren't cursing that the snowblower won't start on that first snowy morning!
