 Today's weather trivia:
22 January 2010: Alone on the Arctic Ocean, a stranded Inuk hunter was
rescued almost 3 days after the ice floe he was snowmobiling across broke
away and began floating across the Northwest Passage. Rescue by plane and
helicopter had been repeatedly hindered by high winds, snow, and mechanical
problems. Eventually, rescue planes dropped a tent, a stove, food, and extra
satellite-phone batteries.
