Today's weather trivia: 18 January
2005: Southwestern BC's cold spell came to an abrupt end in a "tropical
punch" featuring days of torrential rain. The Lower Mainland and Vancouver
Island experienced heavy flooding as more than 127 mm of rain fell in some
areas over 24 hours. Catch basins and ditches overflowed. A mudslide swept a
house off the lower slope of Mount Seymour, killing a woman.
