Wacky… But True, January 12th

An aviation student in northern Minnesota pulled off a sky-high marriage proposal by writing “Marry Me” in the snow, then flying his long-time girlfriend over his handiwork. Gavin Becker enlisted his family’s help to pen the life-changing question using a snow blower on the frozen Eight Crow Wing Lake near Nevis. Gavin’s father says that it took about 4 hours to create the 25-foot-tall (7.5-meter-tall) letters and a huge heart. Gavin then rented a plane and took his high-school sweetheart, Olivia Toft, for a trip over the lake Sunday. Olivia, realizing it was snow joke, told him “yes”. (Source: abcnews.go.com)

A fishing-industry building on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places is half-submerged in waters near a Canadian island, and conservationists fear it could disintegrate before legal tangles are resolved. The January 4th blizzard tore the brine shed from its mooring at McCurdy’s Smokehouse off Lubec, Maine, and it was blown to nearby Campobello Island in New Brunswick. The shed is among five buildings that comprise the last traditional smoked-herring facility in the U.S., and an organization called Lubec Landmarks has worked for almost 25 years to preserve it. Lubec Landmarks President Rachel Rubeor said legal tangles, including salvage rights claims by some Canadian citizens, could doom the building as even vandals with chain saws may dismantle the building.
