 Today's weather trivia: 27 January 1913: A lone man outside a cabin near
Slocan City, BC, saw a snowslide coming straight for him. He hastily made
for a big tree, intending to climb it. However, the avalanche overtook him
and buried him in a solid mass of hard snow, leaving his head and one arm
exposed. His cabin mates heard his shouting and dug him out. Being only
lightly clad and buried in snow for an hour, the man suffered considerably.
