 Today's weather trivia: 15 February 1928: Some 100 km off the Labrador
coast, 2 Canadian airmen and an Inuit civilian's plane made a forced landing
on an ice floe. After walking for a day in heavy weather, they came to open
sea. They paddled for 7 days in an inflated raft, with only emergency
rations, a rifle, and some walrus meat, before reaching land. They trekked 4
days over rough terrain to reach Port Burwell, weary but safe.
