98 years ago today, someone left a package at a church in downtown Milwaukee.

The first-deadliest was September 11, 2001.
Whoever planted the Milwaukee bomb was never caught.

D.B. Cooper has never been found.

Some parts of West Virginia got more than four feet of snow; winds in New Hampshire topped 100 mph.
The temperature dropped to 17 degrees in Charleston, SC, an all-time low for the month of November.
