  • The summers may be cool or warm and rainy. Precipitation ranges from about 1100 mm to 1400 mm per year. Winds over 50 to 60km per hour are considered the gale force winds and they come and go throughout the region. Winter wind speeds may reach 100 km per hour on the islands and shoreline. Ice storm and snow storms are frequent on the Atlantic coast. The bay of Fundy has the highest tides in the world. The difference between high and low tide can be as much as 15 meters. Compare this to the height of your house roof. At low tide the boats along the bay of Fundy rest on the bottom. As the water rises they will float again.
  • Wigwam is an ancestral part domed room dwelling formerly used by certain native American tribes such as the Beothuk and still used for ceremonial purposes. The wigwam is not to be confused with the Native Plains tipi which has a very different construction, structure, and use.
