Today’s Weather Trivia:
13 February 1923: In Edmonton, AB, shivering crowds waited for streetcars as the temperatures plunged to -34°C. But that was nothing compared to the -50°C at House River and Fort McMurray. Saskatchewan also suffered. Trains from the east ran 2 to 10 hours late and a northern gale piled snow high. At Langbank, SK, a passenger train ran into the rear of a stalled snowplow; the plow's caboose broke into kindling. --Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada

12 February 1951: Freezing weather brought relief from floods in the upper reaches of British Columbia's Fraser Valley after a 3-day deluge exceeded 300 mm. Four persons lost their lives and nearly 1,000 were left homeless. About 8 trains were halted short of their destinations, as transcontinental lines were cut by mudslides and washouts. When the rain ended, some parts of the valley got 15 cm of snow.--Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada

Today’s Weather Trivia:
11 February 2006: About 2,500 grey seal pups washed out to sea on a huge storm surge and tide, about 6 m higher than normal, and drowned off Pictou Island in Northumberland Strait. Ice in the Gulf of St. Lawrence was the least ever seen due to unusually warm weather, forcing females to give birth and nurse on the beach. The storm separated some pups from their mothers, and it was feared they would starve.--Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada

Avalanche warnings were issued and the Coquihalla Highway from Hope to Merritt was closed indefinitely; truckers had to take long (expensive) alternative routes. Poor visibility kept helicopter crews from triggering avalanches. Such prolonged closures due to avalanches had not been dealt with before. --Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada

Today’s Weather Trivia:
9 February 1952: After 20 cm of snow fell over a few days in Hamilton, ON, an inter-urban bus skidded on ice and careened down an almost vertical embankment into a 30-m-deep ravine. The accident injured 10 passengers, 2 severely, and at least 8 others, but no one was killed. The embankment was so steep that rescuers formed a human chain to pass the injured up to the highway, where 6 ambulances waited. --Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada

8 February 1867: A drenching rainstorm combined with fast-melting snow raised stream levels to flood stage in southern New Brunswick.

Todays' Weather Trivia:
7 February 1920: The hardest cold in 35 years created heavy ice along Newfoundland's northeast coast. The Prospero was ice jammed for 5 weeks, 10 km from Fogo, short of food and with no help from land due to bad weather. Nearby, 2 other steamers were stuck for 4 weeks, almost submerged by ice at times. Inland, blocked railways left settlements and lumber camps facing famine and horses suffering greatly.--Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada
