Today's weather trivia: 23 February 1982: The western half of PE was buried
once more this winter, after 11 days of snow. It turned cold (-19°C) and
winds created drifts that would support vehicles but were horrific for
snowplows. With roads blocked for over a week, dairy farmers stored milk in
large plastic bags, including washed-out fertilizer bags. Buses lost mirrors
negotiating narrow, twisting openings. School kids had a 2-week break.
