 Today's weather trivia: 28 February 2003: In Ottawa, ON, 1,500 families
could neither shower nor flush due to frozen pipes. The city's thawing and
steam machines worked overtime to fix the problem, the worst since 1994 when
pipes froze in 2,500 homes and businesses. Since January 1, there had been
24 cold days (compared to 1 in 2002 and 1 report of frozen pipes); average
is 15 days. Letting taps run slightly prevents freeze-ups.
