July 2012 – Great summer so far

It was really hard to find anything to complain about this July in Greater Moncton.

With plenty of sunshine, consistently warm temperatures and little precipitation, the month was a great start to summer in Southeast New Brunswick.

The only worrisome note was a lack of rainfall which made forests tinder dry and often banned outdoor campfires.
