    Sounds like you folks are having a Winter to remember.
    Or forget.
    Nothing worse than getting a few “teaser” days, then back to Winter.

    It’s a NL thing. We are well accustomed.

    Up to 15 cm of snow due here. Mixed with rain and I am hoping for mostly rain!!
    15 to 25 cm in northern areas.
    Fun times! I refuse to get my snowblower out again. At least I won't have to work on the lawn this weekend. Or start rebuilding my deck.

    I'm on this boat off of Sable Island trying to get to work decommissioning 7 oil rigs. We've been on this boat for 14 days and we've only been able to do work on 3 shifts and the last one the wind was up by lunch. We've been down 2 days in a row and they're saying we may not be able to get back before Tuesday. This job is going to take a lot longer than they planned!

    Temperatures right around freezing all day today and it has snowed steadily. Maybe 10 cm of very wet snow on the ground. So far, it hasn't accumulated on the asphalt roads but my concrete driveway has a layer of slush on it. If it doesn't stop in the next hour or so, it will likely get cold enough to stay on the roads.
    Just hope the city doesn't feel a need to salt the streets again. Northern part of the province got more.

    That sounds more like a Newfoundland Spring. I wouldn’t be shocked if we get another snow storm.

    It's pretty fucking breezy out here, winds over 100 km's and someone said 8+ meter seas. Needless to say we've pulled away from the rig and we're bouncing pretty good. We haven't worked in days now, we've been on board for 2 weeks now and have only had 3 days where we could work.

    While out for a stroll this morning I left with sunglasses on and when I got to the top of the hill the hail and snow came. With the high winds as the driving force on the downhill the return trip was easier. It finally stopped and the sun came out just as I got home.

    After the snow last week, it looks like we may be over the hump for weather. 21 °C this afternoon. A bit cooler tomorrow but looking at high 20's toward the end of next week. This, of course, means that there will be no further reason to delay an attempt to restore the lawn and completely rebuild a 12' x 24' deck. Not like I can go for any sort of significant ride. New Brunswick roads are far too familiar...

    I've always considered June to be a rainy month in St. John's. Don't pass up on a sunny day like tomorrow. Saturday might be nice too.

    I think we are having our summer this week. And I am spending much of it building a deck.
