and the coming of warm weather.

2006: In Winnipeg, MB, officials couldn't recall more open water on the Red
and Assiniboine Rivers in mid-January in 35 years. Instead of skating,
skiing, or snowshoeing, residents strolled alongside the waterways in the
balmy weather. Only 10 people, rather than the usual 30, signed up for the
University of Manitoba's winter-survival workshop. Few could imagine
building an igloo with slush.

1950: The clock at the post office in Lethbridge, AB, bonged at the wrong
time, confusing passersby. Officials said that due to accumulated dust, fog,
and freezing temperatures, the hands on the clock had become frozen, causing
the large timepiece to act up. The post office could not say when the clock
would sound the correct time-at least not until the weatherman could promise
warmer weather.

1904: The weather turned bitterly cold, and old-timers around Crooked Creek,
YT, said the wind would "blow the hair off a dog." One musher tied a
handkerchief over his face, covering everything but his eyes. A mass of ice,
the congealed moisture from sweat and breath, stuck to his face, making
breathing difficult. The ends of his fingers stung.
