It’s only one month until the official start of summer. The sun should be coming out and homeowners are already thinking about dusting off the grills.

The mercury dropped into the 30s following a surprising blast of arctic air.
At the same time, 4.5 inches was recorded in the northern Maine town of Caribou. The wintry dustings set a record for the most snow this late in May. Six inches of snow also fell in Caswell and New Sweden, Maine, according to CBS News.
