Snow in September

September, 1964
My second visit to Newfoundland.
The plane stopped in Gander. "All off, bring your passports."
I stepped out into the snow. Not appropriately dressed.
Uniformed person at bottom of stairs: "Welcome to Canada."
Me: "Where did this snow come from?"
Canadian official: "This is Canada! It's Septmeber!"
Me: "I've lived many places in Canada and never had snow in September."
Official: "We do. Take your documents to that building."
My high heels and I headed off.
