Today's weather trivia: 19 January 1950: Neighbours and police searched the
nearby river in Guelph, ON, fearing a 2-year-old girl was lost. While search
plans were being made, her father took a last walk around the farm and found
his daughter huddled in the snow, cold and very angry that her glove had
gotten caught in a fence on her farm home. Had she been there much longer,
she would have frozen to death.
