Today's weather trivia: 1 December


2008: Sudbury, ON, residents awoke to 10 cm of snow. The next day, a
disabled person got stuck for 2 hours in his electric wheelchair in a
sidewalk snowbank. A pedestrian reluctantly pushed him onto a busy, 6-lane
roadway. Motorists honked and rolled down windows to curse him. The City
responded that when sidewalks are impassable, disabled residents should use
Handi-Transit.

it difficult moving from dock to dock. On land, temperatures dipped below

with combining, drying grain, baling straw, hauling bales, cleaning corrals,

comrades. By mid-morning, the sun softened the ice enough for the imprisoned
birds to get free.

too agitated and did not stray far from the accident. Due to dwindling bee
populations across Canada, about 1 in every 10 hives hits the road for
national pollination tours.
