"Pat Shingleton's Weather News" is just that, a gathering of items from sources such as The Almanac of the Infamous, Incredible and Ignored. On April 14, 1912, before the Titanic hit an iceberg, Rev. Charles Morgan fell into a fitful sleep filled with frantic voices and crashing waves. Hearing the hymn, "For Those in Peril on the Sea," he shared the dream with his congregation and led them in singing the hymn. News of the disaster reached his home in Winnipeg the next morning. On April 14, 1935, William Reeves, a lookout on a steamer from England to Canada, sensed danger, and remembered the anniversary of the Titanic disaster, 23 years earlier. Sounding the alarm, the ship stopped in a field of ice bergs. It's name? The "Titanian."
