Maine winters are brutal, said captain obvious. And thus, he was right.

One thing I remember about growing up in Maine in the winter was the bus rides to school in the morning. Smelly, seatbelt-less, and cold, because there was ALWAYS that one kid who HAD to have the window open, regardless of how cold it was outside. My memories may not be pleasant, but I think I may have been taking technological advancements for granted when I look at this photo.
