It’s not uncommon for Newfoundland to get snow into late spring — it’s just typically not this much. It was enough snow to close schools, the CBC reported.
Despite how late this winter blast came — and the fact that snow shovels had already been stowed away for the summer — the people in Gander seemed to be taking it in stride.
“If I was smart, I’d move to Florida or somewhere,” Lorne Maxwell told the CBC. “Other than that, it’s Newfoundland. It could be worse.”
