On February 15, 1909, exactly 100 years ago today, ice gorges dammed Niagara Falls, a New Zealand ship wrecked when encountering penguins, and the Lusitania had a rocky voyage, six years before it was sunk by a German torpedo in WWI.
And in no less important news, at least from a personal perspective, a baby boy was born in Montreal.
My grandfather died four years ago, at the age of 96. He would have been 100 years old today.
We miss you lots, Zaida!
