Central Newfoundland got hit with a freak snowstorm that almost no one was expecting especially during a long weekend that typically marks the beginning of summer.
Gander was the hardest hit with 58 cm of snow – the highest total amount to ever fall in May.
The heavy, wet snow covered green lawns, flowers and trees that had already sprouted leaves.
Campers were forced to cancel their weekend plans although some in RV’s toughed it out.
Locals say it’s a snowfall to remember.
