Today's weather trivia: 3 January
1950: A snowstorm hit British Columbia¿s lower mainland and Vancouver
Island. The snow was so deep in places that 1000 sawmill workers were idled
across the province. Trains were 5-10 hours late. What seemed to have no

relief of mining communities. Brutal cold followed with temperatures dipping
to -50°C at Prince George, BC.
