Today's weather trivia: 17 February 2005: In one 3-hour period, Toronto
paramedics responded to 107 calls from icy tumbles-double the normal number
during one of the busiest slip-and-fall periods in years. Warm weather over
2 days melted the snow, leaving puddles on sidewalks and streets. When
temperatures dropped below freezing, standing water froze into hazardous
patches of ice camouflaged by a light dusting of snow.
