 Today's weather trivia: 19 March 1833: New Brunswickers had never witnessed
such intense cold or depth of snow at the beginning of March. Saint Andrew's
Harbour was frozen over and persons crossed frequently. A dreadful slaughter
of red deer took place. Because the animals were slowed by the deep snow,
their pursuers overtook them with ease on snowshoes and cut their throats; 1
person brought 13 carcasses to town.
