 Today's weather trivia: 6 March 2007: Victorians (BC) counted 3.4 billion
blooms in their gardens, parks, and golf courses in this year's Victoria
Flower Count or, as one writer put it, "The 32nd Annual Festival Of Bite Me,
Toronto." This was significantly fewer than the 5.4 billion in 2006 and the
record 8.5 billion in 2002; waning enthusiasm for the flower count, not
weather, was likely the reason for the low tally.
