 Today's weather trivia: 20 March

1907: During a fierce gale, the roof and upper portion of a house were blown
down at St. Simon, NB. The father took one child to the nearest house, 0.5
km away. On returning home, he got lost in the storm. Reaching home the
following morning in a very exhausted state, he found his wife and 3 other
children frozen to death in a snowdrift.
