Description : A late spring snow storm and pack ice.

Twillingate is a town of about 5,000 inhabitants situated on two neighbouring islands in northern Newfoundland. Its name comes from the French word Toulinquet which was given to the islands by French fishermen, who named them after a group of islands off the French coast, near Brest, also called Toulinquet.

By the winter of 1739, there were 152 people - the livyers, or permanent settlers - living in Twillingate. They were mostly fishermen and their families from Devonshire in England.
