Victoria Day Weekend Surprise.....
The Victoria Day long weekend this year has meant shovels, icy roads and a record-breaking snowfall for many residents of central Newfoundland in Atlantic Canada.
In Gander, Newfoundland, 58 centimeters (23 inches) of snow fell between Saturday morning and Sunday night, with peak snowfall on Saturday evening.
Environment Canada meteorologists said the snowfall blew away all previous records - & how about that for your long weekend in May - when many Atlantic Canadians are planning their first long weekend of camping adventures, the weekend many move into their summer places, the first long weekend for many to plan that first fishing trip.
So, those of you that are feeling the heat of the sun in your area, please send some rays to warm up Atlantic Canada.
