nearby river in Guelph, ON, fearing a 2-year-old girl was lost. While search
plans were being made, her father took a last walk around the farm and found
his daughter huddled in the snow, cold and very angry that her glove had
gotten caught in a fence on her farm home. Had she been there much longer,
she would have frozen to death.

1907: Heavy snow and bone-chilling cold made life miserable in Edmonton, AB.
The Edmonton Journal noted: "It's been a week of mufflers and fur coats, of
icicle moustaches and frost-rimmed eyebrows, of frozen windows on Jasper
Avenue and frozen water jugs in the shacks and tents." The intense cold
turned water in a fire hose to slush. Some families burnt straw and
furniture to stay warm.
