Snow fell on Stratton Mountain in Vermont on Saturday morning, part of a wet weekend across New England.
It was a rainy start to Memorial Day weekend in Boston on Saturday — and a snowy one in part of Vermont.

The peak of Stratton Mountain was blanketed in heavy, wet snow overnight Friday into Saturday morning, canceling gondola rides, mountain biking, and yoga sessions at the Stratton Mountain Resort.

Snowfall during the spring isn't uncommon on the mountain, but late May is unusual.

Andrew Kimiecik, a marketing communications specialist for the resort, said a small storm hit the mountain during the first week of May last year.

"One out-of-place storm in May isn't always unusual, but to see one this late in the month is a pretty uncommon occurrence," Kimiecik said.

Suspected fatal shark attack in New Caledonia - 3rd such death for the islands this year

Great white shark
Rescue services in New Caledonia were Thursday searching for the body of a fisherman believed to have been killed by a shark, following a spate of fatal attacks in the South Pacific territory this year.

The alarm was raised on Wednesday after fishermen told emergency services they had seen a shark attack a fisherman diving off a beach on the Nouville peninsula northwest of the capital Noumea.

"Our boat is still there but nothing has been found and no one has yet gone to the police or the gendarmerie to report a disappearance," Alexandre Rossignol, head of communications for civil defence, told AFP.

Witnesses recounted the attack to the newspaper Les Nouvelles-Caledoniennes.

"It was very fast. We saw eddies on the surface, it was a shark that was attacking," one witness said. "We saw the fins flapping above the water and then nothing more."
