Maine has a humid continental
climate, with warm and sometimes
humid summers, and long, cold and
very snowy winters. Winters are
especially severe in the Northern and
Western parts of Maine, while coastal
areas are moderated slightly by the
Atlantic Ocean, resulting in
marginally milder winters and cooler
summers than inland regions.
In coastal Maine, the late spring and
summer months are usually driest—a
rarity across the Eastern United
States. Maine has fewer days of
thunderstorms than any other state
east of the Rockies, with most of the
state averaging fewer than twenty
days of thunderstorms a year.
Port Clyde, ME.
A Historic Wonderland
Port Clyde, where most of the pictures in this site came from, is the southernmost
settlement on the St. George peninsula in central/coastal Maine and part of the town of
St. George in Knox County.
In the 19th century, Port Clyde became a busy port featuring granite quarries, tide mills
for sawing timber, and shipbuilding and fish canning businesses. By the 20th century,
the area attracted artists and writers.
Port Clyde's harbor was originally known as Herring Gut. Marshall Point – site of the
Marshall Point Lighthouse– is Port Clyde's southernmost extremity. This lighthouse is the
one to which Tom Hanks ran in the 1994 film Forrest Gump.
Port Clyde was home to The Port Clyde Packing Co., manufacturer of Port Clyde
Sardines. Employing around 200 people, it was the largest employer in the area for
most of its existence. The factory was destroyed in a fire on September 26, 1970.
