Today's weather trivia: 2 January


1922: Stripped of her sails, iced-up, and unmanageable, the schooner
Alexandra, carrying a cargo of fish, was driven ashore near Ingonish, NS.
Because the blinding snow prevented hope of rescue, in desperation, the
master tied a line to his waist, jumped into the icy water, and fought his
way to shore. Luckily, the howling blizzard ceased for a spell, and the
master was able to drag his crew to safety.
