It took its time coming but when it did, wow! Wednesday was cold, very cold indeed. Vancouver dipped to 19 degrees, breaking the record of 21 degrees set in 1919. As the clock struck midnight Tuesday, Vancouver had already dropped to 22 degrees, tying the record of 22 degrees in 1919. It is possible at the time of my writing that by midnight Wednesday it dropped below 19 degrees, setting the record low lower. Unlikely, but maybe, since we were at a lower temperature at sunset than on Tuesday.
Vancouver police are seeking help from the public in finding a missing, endangered 5-month old boy. Jaxon Smith is believed to be with one or both of his parents, Summer B. Smith, 36, and Kasey McKernan, 31.
