Today's Weather Trivia:
9 April2007: Eight Canadian Forces' Arctic Sovereignty patrol members ended
their mission between Eureka and Alert, NU, a route perhaps never taken
before. They had slogged 9 days by snowmobile at -50°C, with winds over 100
km/h; erecting a tent took up to 2 hrs and refuelling a snowmobile was an
ordeal. Three teams travelled a combined 5,589 km over 17 days to assert
Canadian sovereignty in the North. -Excerpt from 'The Canadian WeatherTrivia
