Newfoundland police issue nation-wide search for summer


Summer hasn’t reached one Canadian province and police have issued a nation-wide manhunt to locate the missing season.

Yesterday, the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary (RNC) released an official statement on Twitter seeking help from the public in an effort to find the whereabouts of summer.

Last seen, police describe it “being 20-30 degrees Celsius, blue skies with a bright and warm source of light in the sky.”

The police also identified “two persons of interest,” which happen to be the local meteorologists in Newfoundland– Ryan Shoddon from CBC and Eddie Sheerr from NTV.

Day after day, both Shoddon and Sheerr have delivered horribly cold forecasts. The people in Newfoundland and Labrador have been left to face nothing but rain, drizzle and fog throughout the past couple of months.

There have only been five days over 20 degrees Celsius, reported the Weather Network. “St. John’s average temperature as of July 21 was 12.7 degrees Celsius … tying it with 1944, as the third coldest July on record.”

At some point enough was enough and the police eventually got involved. Even Police Chief William Janes has joined the investigative team to track down summer.

“Once June 21 rolled around, we still hadn’t had any consecutive days of warm temperature or sun. That is when the investigation started.” Const. Steven Curnew from RNC told the National Post.

Police didn’t taking long to find the culprits. Within minutes after the statement was released, both meteorologists have been arrested and detained for “failing to provide the essentials of summer that being sunshine, good forecast and blue skies.”

Despite all the cold forecasts, Newfoundland sure knows how to make light of bad circumstances.
