Today's weather trivia: 23 January 1877: West of Greensville, ON, a horse
attached to a sleigh was snowed in, only its head poking through the deep
snowdrift. The horse's owner had stopped at a street corner for a long time,
so his horse started home without him but only succeeded in getting part of
the way. The horse had to be dug out of the drift.
