Yesterday’s rain/wind/snow storm was a sober reminder about how absolutely insane Maritime weather can be.  Watching the temperature plummet and staying inside all night as a result of the monsoon got us reminiscing about how fun Nova Scotia can be during summertime.

Below we’ve compiled a list of things all east coasters are very much looking forward to experiencing during the warmer months!  Though it may seem cold now, we’ve only got a couple more weeks to go before spring begins, and venturing outside can be done without massive parkas and an umbrella.
