Is it ever too late for frost?
Lovely fern frost on the window! Not so nice in July!

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!
