 Today's weather trivia: 30 January 1939: The worst blizzard in years lashed
Ontario's Ottawa Valley, blocking roads and tying up traffic. The gale piled
waist-high drifts across streets and sidewalks, and streets lights became
faint blurs of illumination. Drivers and passengers pushed vehicles from
snow drifts. One prominent Smiths Falls' resident steered his car as it
moved slowly down the street, drawn by a team of horses!
