Well the groundhog saw his shadow yesterday meaning six more weeks of winter!  I’m all set for the cold snap that’s hitting tomorrow with historic low temperatures.  Weather app says it may hit -44C with the wind-chill.  All you furry friends be sure to stay indoors and when you do need to go out, it’s five minutes and back in as quickly as possible!  It’s very important for everyone to remember that frostbite can happen very quickly in temperatures that low!  My fridge is stocked, I have lots of propane for the fireplace and I’ll be staying cosy on the couch.

Well Canada just reported its latest  study on home prices across the country covering 48 major cities and Saint John came in at #1 as the lowest prices in the country.  We may complain that prices have risen during Covid with the addition of many newcomers mostly from Ontario and British Columbia but…  this is still the very best place to live and low homes prices is just part of it as we locals know!  Fredericton came in at #2 and Moncton came in at #5 so out of 48 cities New Brunswick has three in the top 5!  Way to go New Brunswick, we always knew you were #1 and we know why!!!  Mama always called it Canada’s Best Kept Secret but it looks like the secret is out of the bag!

We’re hosting an open house this Sunday from 2pm – 4pm at 30 Maliseet Drive in Rothesay.  This nice-sized ranch is a one owner (engineer) and very well built.  It features 9′ ceilings, large eat-in quartz kitchen, 3 bedrooms up and 1 down in the fully finished basement plus huge flex room.  There are 3 full bathrooms including the master ensuite, oversized deck and flat 1/2 acre private lot.  The crème  de la crème is that it comes with beach rights on a nearby gorgeous beach (next to #45 Maliseet Drive) which has an awesome panoramic view sunset view!  I know where I’d be hanging out with friends all summer and you can to.  Drop by to have a look.  Your host is my friend and colleagueGreg O-Brien, 506-353-5123.

See you soon, have a great weekend and most importantly stay warm!

Your pal,
