 Today's weather trivia: 11 March 2007: Alternating cold and mild air
produced gigantic icicles on homes in and around St. John's, NL. Some of the
sharp, heavy stalactites were 2 m long (or more). Although too brittle to
inflict a fatal wound, falling icicles caused serious enough injuries to
send a number of people to emergency rooms. Homeowners and businesses are
legally liable for such injuries.
