  • "It was a calm night where the sealers lay, but Captain George Barbour, a veteran who knew all the signs of the weather, noted 'mares' tails' in the sky and saw that the sun was shimmering as if it had been dipped in a bowl of crystal. 'The sun is showing for a storm,' he said soberly to his second hand."
    --Cassie Brown with Harold Horwood, Death on the Ice: The Great Newfoundland Sealing Disaster of 1914, Doubleday Canada, 1972.
