Today's weather trivia: 22 December


2005: A rare winter lightning strike in Victoria, BC, left about 1,800
customers in Saanich without power and more than 12 intersections without
operating traffic lights. Lightning occurs in Victoria about 3 times a year.
Earlier, high winds caught a Cessna 185 float plane's wing while landing
near Galiano Island. The plane flipped, but luckily the 2 men on board
exited without serious injury.
