Today's weather trivia: 17 November


2009: Strong westerly winds blew at least 6 transport trucks off highways
south of Calgary, AB. Further north, a storm dumped 60 cm of snow in the
mountains, clogging roads and causing the temporary closure of Highway 93
between Jasper, AB, and Saskatchewan River Crossing, AB. The high winds
fanned the flames of a grass fire near Lashburn, SK, that affected highway
traffic.

2007: In one of southern Ontario's strangest falls, trees were either bare,
ablaze in colour, or summer-green. Toronto's October average temperature was
14.3°C, the warmest ever. Frost signals trees to begin dropping their
leaves-with no frost yet, some trees remained in summer mode. Also, the
growing season had been so dry that many stressed trees hung onto their
leaves for nourishment.

Today's weather trivia: 15 November


1911: A cold wave across northern Ontario froze Cobalt Lake, trapping gulls
in the ice. The birds, calmly reposed with heads tucked under warm wings,
did not notice their plight until they attempted to rise at daylight. Those
birds that awoke before they were frozen in flew around their unfortunate
comrades. By mid-morning, the sun softened the ice enough for the imprisoned
birds to get free.

2007: Howling winds in Winnipeg, MB, sent stolen loot sailing into the air.
Bank bandits were escaping when a dye pack in the loot bag exploded in a
cloud of red ink. As they threw the bag away, the wind took it and scattered
red-dye-splattered $10, $20, and $50 bills. An eyewitness called them polite
"Canadian" robbers-when one robber bumped into him, he said, "Excuse me, I'm
sorry."
