Between March 8th and 9th 2005. The worst storm of the winter season struck our area. This intense nor'easter (minimum pressure of 962 mb) caused a combination of heavy rain, heavy freezing rain, followed by some snow and strong winds. This resulted in several hours of a crippling icing event on the evening of the 8th and early morning hours of the 9th, that knocked of the power for over 15 hours! Posted by Picasa


Hello everyone. I hope that you are having a wonderful high Summer weekend.

This blog will be reserved for information pertaining to day to day weather occurring in my local. For those who may not know. My local area is the West-Central Saint John River Valley of the Maritime Province of New Brunswick in Canada. I spend my late Spring period and my Summers in a small community called Johnson Settlement (that is located roughly midway between the villages of Meductic and Canterbury), and my Fall through early Spring period studying Multi-Media and Film at UNB in Fredericton (about 55 miles just South of due East from Johnson Settlement), where I am working towards my BA in said fields.

My general area of The Western Maritimes and Eastern New England has some of the most changeable, and volatile weather conditions in North American, in particular in the late Fall and Winter months. There is a saying around these parts that sum the situation up rather nicely;

"If you don't like the weather, just wait a few minutes and it is bound to change"

As such there is always something or other of interest going on in this area every week, or two.

With the above stated, sit back and enjoy the show.
