The Tropics of Northern New England

When you're experiencing the coldest summer in 40 years (by some measures, the coldest summer in 135 years), where do you go for vacation?

Why, northern New England, of course. It's been at least 10 degrees warmer there all summer, and often much more.

That's why I'm taking my family to Maine for the next week. We're looking forward to lounging by the water, playing badminton in the languid heat and drinking iced cocktails.

Be back in August.
