Today’s Weather Trivia:
23 October 2003:2003: Officials reluctantly cancelled an NBA exhibition game in St. John's, NL, an hour before tip-off between the Toronto Raptors and the Cleveland Cavaliers because the wood floor was too wet. Unusually high humidity, warm (15°C) and foggy weather, and hockey ice beneath the floor made the court too slick to play on. An angry crowd of 8,000 fans booed lustily. – Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada
