New Brunswick – Environment Canada has issued an extreme cold warning for most of New Brunswick. The agency, along with practically every New Brunswick Facebook user, wants the public to know that it’s cold outside – really cold.
A statement released early Tuesday morning stated “It’s super cold out right now and we wanted to warn you about it. It’ll be windy, and probably stay cold for a long time.” Environment Canada suggests that the public keep a close eye on their Facebook and Twitter news feeds to stay up to date on exactly how cold it is.
The Manatee opted out of interviewing anyone as it was much too cold for reporting staff to be out in the field, and instead relied on extensively searching Twitter for quotes from local residents. We found that N.B. Twitter users have been trying to relay appropriate quips to capture how cold it is since the temperature started to drastically drop Monday afternoon.

Environment Canada expects the extreme cold to last until it gets warmer out, and suggests that people take the appropriate precautions until then. “We want to reiterate the fact that it’s really cold right now,” expressed Janice Polchies from the agency. “Everyone should wear coats and things to keep warm with. That’s what we suggest – do things to stay warm.”
