 Today's weather trivia: 9 February 2009: Residents in the eastern Prairies
woke to slippery roads and sidewalks resulting from rain and freezing rain.
It had been 9 years since it last rained in Winnipeg in February. Today was
possibly the rainiest February day ever: 26.5 mm. Highways resembled used
car lots with so many in ditches. A worker died after a metal roof at a
Portage la Prairie vegetable farm collapsed under snow and ice.
