What happened with your weather in the past week or so?
Our February weather has been a mix of very cold, warm and in between. We have had three big snowstorms, the first one was our part of Hurricane Sandy, the next was a blizzard some weather people called, "Nemo" and then this past weekend we had another foot of snow. If you want to check our weather the NOAA station in Gray, Maine is nearby.

We made this video of our weather charts of Yarmouth on March 11:

Tell about a stereotype about your country/area. Can you tell us what parts are true or what parts are false?
We live near the ocean so some people think that everyone likes to eat lobster all the time. Mostly tourist eat lobster and some people in Maine don't like lobster at all.
