Today's weather trivia: 30 October

1898: An unexpected blast occurred at an Alberni, BC, church. A small
contract had been let to blow up stumps in the churchyard, and to keep the
exploding powder secure, the contractor stored it in the church stove. When
the weather turned cool, the stove was lit to warm the building for church
service. Suddenly there was an explosion, and the church was in need of a
new stove.
