Today's weather trivia: 13 December
1941: From Moncton, NB, came word that the Canadian corvette Windflower had
sunk because it was rammed by a merchant vessel in dense fog. About 4 m of
the corvette's stern was clipped off cleanly, then there was an explosion.
In about an hour, the injured merchant ship came back and picked up the
corvette's crew. Twenty men from the Windflower floated in the water before
they were rescued.
