A big iceberg was spotted off Job's Cove on the Bay de Verde Peninsula on Feb. 10.

You can usually time the welcome of icebergs by the arrival of summer and the tourism season, but this year the mighty bergs seem to be hugging the coastline early. 
Icebergs usually show up off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador in May and June, and draws large swaths of people to the province each year. 
In my 43 yrs here I don't recall ever seeing a iceberg in Logy Bay in Feb. there's a massive one offshore this morn!
