- Today’s Weather Trivia:
April 10,1888: Montreal, QC, streets filled with soft, mushy snow and standing water made getting around difficult and dangerous for pedestrians and horses. This, plus the filth in the streets that spring, increased fears that a smallpox epidemic would return. A slow clean up prompted 200 citizens, with 50 wagons, to pitch in, only to have the local council ridicule them for their efforts. – Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment
