Today's weather trivia: 7 January

2008: Heavy fog in southern Ontario led to school closures,
cancelled/postponed buses and flights, and highway closures. It was the
worst where snow on the ground cooled unseasonably warm air. In rural areas,
visibility was zero, stranding hundreds of drivers. One man died in a foggy
crash in the Ottawa Valley on a day that set a daily record for the warmest
temperature, +9.5°C, in over 60 years.
