 Today's weather trivia: 11 February 1951: An unprecedented 3-day downpour,
over 300 mm in places, followed by 15 cm of snow, inundated parts of the
Fraser Valley, BC, forcing hundreds to flee. When temperatures plunged,
parts of the valley became a vast skating pond. Chilliwack was hardest hit
with a metre of water threatening the water supply. Three people perished.
Schools closed and rail lines were severed by mud slides and washouts.
