Temperature Swings
January in Miramichi, New Brunswick

We started back to school after winter break with 22 cm of snow on the garden. During the week of January 21 to January 25 it was very, very cold out! The wind chill warnings each day was between -30C to -35C. We hope our tulips were nice and warm under ground. On January 31st, we got lots of rain and all the snow melted. Our coldest day in January was -35°C (-31°F), and our warmest day was 12°C (53.6°F). - Lisa Sullivan, Nelson Rural School
