Are the date format(s) known? Are there limited event description? Can post some (makeup) sample data?

Subject: [Chicago-talk] Spliting an up undelimited file

I have a text file that I need to split up so I can put it into a database. However, it isn't exactly delimited. The structure is as follows:

March 1, 2006 Few interruptions. Operations proceed as planed.
March 2, 2006 Delays due to bad weather and worker absences.
March 3, 2006 Significant progress. Few absences reported and agreeable weather.

I want to split it up into two scalars: date and event description however since it's not delimited I'm not sure how to go about this. Any suggestions appreciated.
