It was a day people in parts of Ontario and New York State will never forget.
On October 12, 2006, a freak storm dumped 40 cm of snow in Fort Erie, Ontario, and over 60 cm in neighbouring Buffalo over a span of two days.
Trees were knocked over, power-lines were down and the city had to deal with extensive flooding when the snow began to melt.
The snow that fell on October 12 not only produced a one-day October record for Fort Erie, but broke the record for the entire month, as well.
Here are some other interesting weather stories for this day in history:
