Someone has built a snowman and snowwoman on the mound in the middle of the roundabout on Commercial Street in New Minas.
People driving down Commercial Street in New Minas today, Dec. 29, might notice something different when they go through the roundabout. Someone has built a snowman and snowwoman on the mound in the middle of the traffic circle to greet visitors to the village. Due to above-freezing temperatures, the snowwoman has already lost her carrot nose and several buttons. However, the frosty couple might stand a chance at survival today, as the Environment Canada forecast for Kentville is calling for cloudy skies and flurries beginning this afternoon with winds developing out of the northeast at 20 km/h. The temperature is expected to fall to -3C by the afternoon.
