Today's weather trivia: 20 December
1910: A 16-year-old boy from Burwash, ON, froze to death and his father had
badly frozen limbs. Homeward bound from chopping wood, they lost their way
but kept tramping. By the time they knew the surroundings, the boy could not
go on. His father carried him a few metres, but didn't have the energy. The
boy asked to be left behind while the father hurried home for the sleigh. It
was too late.
