Today's weather trivia: 8 December


2003: Two paramedics parachuted to a beacon thinking it was a downed plane
740 km northwest of Edmonton, AB. The blaze turned out to be a natural gas
flare burning for at least 2 decades. The men could not slow down and landed
in a tree about 30 m up. The two were not injured, but it was cold (-27°C).
Using the flare for warmth, they camped out before being picked up the next
day by a helicopter.

clambered through a window to safety. Both suffered minor frostbite. The ice
was only 10 cm thick, and the overnight temperatures were a relatively
comfortable -8°C.

1921: A storm, likely a weather bomb, raged over Newfoundland, resulting in
the loss of several boats and lives. At Capelin Cove, in Conception Bay, NL,
the storm drove a large fishing schooner ashore. Through the mist, residents
on shore could see those in peril. A futile rescue attempt was made-before a
line could be shot over, the vessel broke into pieces in the heavy sea
beating over the rocks.
