 Today's weather trivia: 21 March 2011: As of this day, 6,800 truckloads or
220,000 t of fuel and equipment had been hauled along the 568-km-long winter
road to the diamond mines north of Yellowknife, NT. The haulage nearly
doubled the previous year¿s totals. With colder weather early in the winter,
the road was opened 10 days earlier, allowing crews to get trucks on the
road a lot quicker than expected.
