Today's weather trivia: 14 October

1920: In Yukon, very low water levels and early October temperatures below
-20°C caused early ice up on several rivers between Whitehorse and Dawson.
Ice tore up the wheel and rudders of several boats and sank barges. Every
American Yukon Navigation Co. steamer below Dawson froze in the Yukon River;
4 passenger steamers and a large mail boat met the same fate between Dawson
and Tanana.
