Staffer wins with Windsor weather wisdom

Janeen Auld, a mass spectrometry technician in the chemistry department, won Monday’s DailyNews quiz contest and the prize of a beautiful telescoping umbrella donated by the University Bookstore.

The quiz proved surprisingly controversial when one question had two correct answers.

Windsor’s hottest recorded temperature was 40.2 C degrees on June 25, 1988; the city is a terminus of Tornado Alley; and on separate occasions, Environment Canada has named Windsor its capital both for lightning and summer smog. To defuse the issue, the judges counted either response as correct.

Auld’s name was drawn from the expanded batch of all correct entries.

To help celebrate the University of Windsor’s 50th anniversary, DailyNews will run a contest at the beginning of each week, offering a prize donated by the University Boookstore. Today’s prize, a folding umbrella in Lancer blue and gold, is available for purchase from the Bookstore kiosk in the CAW Student Centre at a cost of $15.95.
