 Today's weather trivia: 7 February 2008: Just after 9:00 AM, a Calgary, AB,
woman was sitting on her bed, chatting on her phone, when a melon-size chunk
of blue-tint ice crashed through the roof, narrowly missing her. The shards
of ice hitting the back of her neck and head made her think she had been
shot, but Transport Canada said the ice likely fell from a passing airplane.
It left a 45-cm hole in the roof of her house.
