April 23 2000:
About a half-dozen icebergs menaced 3 oilrigs on the Grand Banks, off Newfoundland. It was the first time in 10 years that icebergs-some of them the size of small apartment buildings-threatened drilling operations. Water cannons were used to blast the icebergs, but those shooting the icebergs couldn't see them because of the thick fog. The Grand Banks is one of the foggiest places in the world.
