Coast Guard Ship cutting a channel in the Bay of Islands February 3.

Snow Squall February 5

You know it's mid winter in Western Newfoundland when the ice covers the Bay of Islands and the Coast Guard is out, cutting a channel for the ships.

While the rest of Canada enjoyed reduced snowfall this year, we had ours early and it's already deep. But February can be our worse month and one year, I counted 26 days in a row where it snowed at least 5 cm every day.

The good news is 2012 seems different and although, we have had a couple of days of flurries, it has been calm. The light seems brighter and the air warmer, can it be that we are at the end?

Of course, you never know in Newfoundland as the weather can turn dirty in a blink of an eye.

  1. We are supposed to get a warm up tomorrow so hopefully it will head your way. I'm not going to complain about the weather after the winter we suffered through last year.
