 Today's weather trivia:
21 January 1929: Floods that drowned 3 at railway washouts in Eastern
Ontario and caused enormous property damage receded following colder weather
and drying winds. In Belleville several horses and cattle drowned, and
residents were marooned with many narrow escapes. In one incident,
floodwaters completely covered a vehicle east of Belleville, trapping 5
young people inside. One person swam 200 m to for help.
