Today's weather trivia: 31 October

1929: A strong, northeasterly winter blast with wet snow wreaked havoc on
Winnipeg, MB. Unable to bear the weight of the water-soaked snow, trees and
light, power, and telephone lines toppled to the ground, narrowly missing
pedestrians and cars. It took several days to repair the damage. City
police, on duty to control Halloween revelers, instead kept onlookers away
from live wires.
