Today's weather trivia: 29 December
1933: A trapper near Fort St. John, BC, was overtaken by a storm while out
on the trail. He was forced to take shelter in an abandoned, roofless cabin.
Temperatures dipped to -51°C. His feet became so frozen, they swelled up and
turned black. On the 8th day and desperate, he killed his sled dogs but was
unable to eat their flesh. On the 9th day he had made up his mind to end his
life when help arrived.
