Weather capital

A bit of a fog

Environment Canada reports that St. John's has the distinction of being the [bad] weather capital of Canada. St. John's apparently has the most:
  • foggy days at 124 days,
  • snow with 359 average snowfall,
  • rain at 1514 mm average yearly rainfall,
  • wind at 24.3 kms/hr daily average over the year, and
  • cloudy with only 1497 hours of sunshine per year.
To be quite honest, I didn't notice. Still a great place to paddle though.


  1. True Stan. If we waited for ideal conditions we certainly wouldn't paddle near as much.

  2. yeah, some of would have to settle for just a lousy 100 times in the kayak...
