 Today's weather trivia: 26 March 1830: Halifax was hit by one of the most
violent snow storms and destructive gales on record. Tidal water entirely
covered all the wharves, wetting everything, including the lower floors of
almost every house near the water. Rising waters swept away homes, wharves,
and a distillery, and killed 2 fine horses. Damage was also done to the
naval yard, particularly the wall in front of the Naval Hospital.
