Barry's Response - Nice shot of the city, though. The Ville de Saint John isn't exactly the centre of desert heat for sure, although a temperature of 40°C has been recorded on at least one occasion. Typical summer days have a maximum between 23 and 27, while winter nights normally cool of to -13 to -20. April and October see daily highs in the 8 to 15 range usually.
The place is quite damp also, living under the constant influence of the maritime air mass. St. John gets most of its rain October and November and lowest in Jan - March when the snow falls heavily at times.
Barry's Response - I have been to Saint John, but only in the summer. Lovely place. I like the maritime feel and the moist air, as opposed the oppressive dryness we experience out west all the time. I did find Fredericton substantially warmer in July, though.
Having said that, the winter shot shown above looks very similar to a winter photograph taken on the prairies. White snow, brown just above everything else. Except I thought blue skies in winter were unique to the prairies.
If anyone is thinking of visiting thisi part of New Brunswick sometime...do more than just think. Go check it out. It's a city...not too big. Just under 70,000 in the vicinity. Go to the City Market. It's big and old and unlike anything else. Have fun.
