Expect this spring-like weather to continue into the weekend in southern Saskatchewan.
This mild trend should continue well into next week according to Environment Canada.
However, in David Phillips’ ‘The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar’, we’re reminded of a scene in Edmonton, AB when 40 hockey players broke the world record for longest continuous hockey play on this day in 2008.
Each player averaged about 12 hours of ice time a day over 240 hours.
The first few days were the hardest, with temperatures below -40°C.
The weather ranged from bitter to balmy in their frosty marathon to raise money for cancer research.
The final score was 2,223 for Team Hope and 2,250 for Team Cure.
Enjoy THIS mild stretch in Saskatchewan!
