September in Greater Moncton felt like a continuation of the incredible summer we had with one exception – it finally rained and when it did it poured.
After below normal amounts of rain in July and August, September certainly made up for it although for farmers it may have been too much too late.
Perhaps the warm, wet weather played a role but the leaves seemed slow in changing colour with only hints of red, yellow and gold by the end of the month.
