Rain is on its way throughout the Okanagan and Shuswap. This morning we’ll review last night’s ugly fight in the NFL, and look further back to an snack innovator who chose to be buried in his most famous creation.
Fun Fact of the day:
Pringles is among the strongest potato chip brands in the world, and much of its success owes to its packaging. While the iconic cylindrical Pringles container lives on, its inventor passed away in 2008.
In 1966, Frederic Baur conjured up an idea to stack chips neatly rather than haphazardly tossing them in a bag. He invented the Pringles container for Proctor & Gamble, the original developers (Pringles is now owned by Kellogg’s).
Clearly, inventing the Pringles can was an achievement Baur wanted to be remembered by. At his request, some of his ashes were placed in a Pringles and buried with him in his grave. His children had briefly debated over what flavour should be used, but landed on the right call: original.
Weather forecast according to Environment Canada:
There’s likely to be some precipitation throughout the Valley today, but fortunately for those who don’t feel like shovelling, it won’t be snow. Temperatures will stay at around 8 C.
In Salmon Arm:
In case you missed it (ICYMI):
The provincial government is working with the RCMP to address a projected $10.7-million budget shortfall in the force’s provincial budget, according to a B.C. public safety minister’s statement to Black Press Media.
