It’s July. We should be focusing on sunscreen and dry beach towels and not worrying about frost, right?  But it’s the Maritimes, so...anything can happen.

On this date – July 7th 1974, there was a killing frost in and around Havelock New Brunswick. 

This from Carol Donald:

“My parents had some friends and relatives join them for their 40th wedding anniversary at their camp on the Canaan Road, north-west of Havelock New Brunswick on July 7th 1974.  The party broke up at about 1:30 am.  Every car was coasted with a hard frost.  One guest has a windshield scraper.   It was needed …as well as kitchen implements.”

A little stroll down memory lane, and a reminder that we shouldn’t complain about a little rain on the weekend!
