Todays' Weather Trivia:
6 February 2006: An airbus from France flew to Iqaluit, NU, for "cold soaking"-when a plane is shut down for hours at very low temperatures and then started up. Iqaluit is famous for stress testing as it is cold and dry, with a long runway and no noise controls or curfew. It was unusually warm, though, with daytime highs of -15°C (normal is -24°). By month's end, it exceeded 5°C, the warmest spot in Canada.--Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada

Todays' Weather Trivia:
5 February 1899: In 1959, a veteran Yukoner was remembering a cold wave that gripped the Territory 60 years ago, when the mercury froze and all ravens went south. No one ventured out except in an emergency. Local prospectors spent their time indoors in warm cabins washing gold nuggets while baking bread with a "gleam in their eye thinking of the good times to come when they sluiced the dump in spring." --Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada
