Today's weather trivia: 17 January
1907: A cold, stormy period on Canada's Pacific coast left citizens angry
with Mother Nature for daily shipwrecks, flooding, stranded tugboats, trees
falling on houses, stalled trains, downed telegraph wires, and the effects
of extreme cold (-16.7°C). On this day, the liquid in a Vancouver, BC,
soda-pop factory's machinery froze and pipes burst, while filled bottles
exploded; damage was $1,500.
