 Today's weather trivia: 26 January 2005: Manitobans were smashing their
vehicles at record pace, thanks to blizzards, freezing rain, ice-covered
roads, quick thawing, and flash freezing. The highway from Headingley to
Brandon was closed 3 times. More than 25,000 accidents had already occurred
in January, up some 16% from last year. Snow-packed roads and motorists
trying to see around snow banks at intersections were major causes.
