Today's Weather Trivia:
1958: Three black funnel clouds passed through the town of La Salle, ON,
yesterday, by-passing a Roman Catholic school where 95 pupils knelt in
prayer. Most children ran to the window to watch the tornado. About to hit,
the tornado suddenly skipped aside and headed to the other end of town. An
hour later, a second twister roared through Leamington, shattering a section
of Canada's largest greenhouse.

got was "no answer."
