 Today's weather trivia: 18 February 1904: The ocean liner Pallanza left
Germany with cargo for New York and 150 immigrants bound for Winnipeg, MB.
It finally arrived in Halifax, NS, a month later. Six days out from Hamburg,
Germany, the ship ran into a storm, which continued for 70 hours, during
which its smokestack was smashed and everything moveable ripped off its
decks. In a subsequent storm, a huge 8-hour smoke fire broke out on board.
