 Today's weather trivia: 24 February 2003: The temperature in Winnipeg, MB,
dipped to -35.9°C, the coldest day that winter. At Scoopy Doo Canine Waste
Removal, business was picking up. Calling them poopsicles, the owner said,
"It's actually easier to clean ... because it's so frozen you just whack it
out ... like a golf ball." Extreme cold often causes water-main breaks;
owners must pay to free their car from ice caused by a break.
