 Today's weather trivia: 24 January 1924: A large icicle crashed 12 m from a
roof, fracturing the skull of a Montreal teen walking to work. He suffered a
fatal 10-cm gash to the top of his skull. In addition, he sustained a
fractured shin and a number of minor injuries. Police arrested the owner of
the house and charged him with violating a bylaw regarding cleaning snow and
ice from rooftops. He pleaded guilty and was fined $25 and costs.
