Today's Weather Trivia

April 81927:
Two men left the foundering schooner Nellie near Cape Chignecto, NS, and fought their way to the seeming safety of land, only to find themselves trapped between a high unscalable cliff face on one side and the pounding sea on the other. They eventually succumbed to their injuries on the narrow beach. One man was the schooner's captain; the other was identified from the address in his pocket.

Hi, Tony! Looks like most of your snow has melted! Is there much flooding yet?

Have a good day!
