A storm-a brewin'
Funnel cloud north of Woodstock New Brunswick.
- Lovely Hartland. Never been there myself...maybe someday. You will find it on the St. John River in the western part of the province of New Brunswick. It is peaceful and has a population of nearly 1000.
Woodstock, with over 5000 people, is in the same county (Carleton, just west of the Capital city of Fredericton), about a half-hour south of Hartland.
Funnel clouds and tornadoes do happen in New Brunswick quite regularly, however they normally occur later in the summer than the submission date for this photo (June 2, 2013) would suggest. Some purportedly took place on the other side of Fredericton that July for instance.
What's the weather like in New Brunswick?
Like most of Canada, New Brunswick has four distinct seasons. Late summer and fall is really nice - check out the colours there if you get a chance.
Winters are snowy (compared to Alberta). See, especially, the record snow amounts they've had in Feb to March 2015. There has been enough to bury houses and cars.
Anyways, thanks for the picture, Jeffrey.
