 Today's weather trivia: 13 February 1923: In Vancouver, BC, a storm loaded
with rain and snow was called the worst in 8 years. It played havoc with
streetcar and vehicle traffic and coastal shipping, delayed trains and
ferries, threw hundreds of men out of work, yet provided employment for
1,000 snow-shovellers clearing roads and rail tracks. In Victoria, strong
winds piled snow into huge drifts.
