Today’s Weather Trivia:
18 December 1873: An old couple near Norton, NB, whose respective ages were 73 and 76, were married. Prior to the wedding and just after an intense snowstorm, the aged bridegroom walked to Saint John and back, a distance of 60 km return, to procure his wedding suit, carrying his purchase with him. Many people thought that not so bad for a man that age.– Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada
