 Today's weather trivia: 16 March 1920: Search parties on snowshoes,
horseback, and in sleighs set out from St. Claude, MB, to find a labourer
missing in a blizzard for 3 days. Searchers gave up, but a farmer's son
continued following the footprints. He eventually found the victim's body,
lying against a snowbank, 30 m from a CPR right-of-way. His face was
completely hidden behind a thick, white mask of frozen snow.
