 Today's weather trivia: 4 February 1924: Blizzards across Newfoundland
contributed to the sad death of a Methodist minister from Fogo. Overtaken by
weather as he was returning from Seldom Comeby, 15 km away, instead of
turning back to shelter, he forged ahead against the increasingly violent
gale. Rescuers found his body about 2 km from his home. The blizzards also
buried railway tracks, blocking trains across the province.
