 Today's weather trivia: 16 February 1959: Following the greatest daily
snowfall in St. John's ever, 55 cm in one day, the city was at a standstill.
Digging out of 5-m snowdrifts in winds approaching 200 km/h was hard. The
storm blocked city streets and cut off power and telephone service. The only
way out was on foot. A snow slide at China Rock near the harbour entrance
suffocated 5 people. Nine others were trapped, one of them for 12 hours.
