Today’s Weather Trivia:
9 October 2008: Go fishing or stay on shore? For the past 2 weeks in the Bay of Fundy, lobster fishers were only able to go out every 3 days or so because of strong, persistent winds. Each postponed day increases the risk taken by fishers to make up lost time. Further, when winds churn up the seabed, lobsters don't feed until the water settles down. – Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment
