Keene, NH's Pumpkin
Festival maybe?) check out the following sites for up to the minute forecasts on

This Week's Stories:

Autumn in Maine: Peeping and More!
Peak foliage can't be predicted, but one thing is certain: anyone visiting Maine
from the last week of September  to the third week of October will see trees
showing off the yellow, orange, red and purple hues that have made Maine the
top destination for leaf-peepers...

The Frugal Yankee Tip of the Week

Mice can be a problem as cold weather starts. If you don’t have a mouser, try
and close up as many holes in your foundation as possible. For those big holes,
try using steel wool to black them from getting in. After they are in, traps,
poison and a good mouser are your choices.
