May 22,1911: Around supper hour, gale-force winds began blowing on the west side of Medicine Hat, AB. The lumber yard was the big loser as the full force of the storm scattered lumber for 0.5 km. A large board flew through a hardware store window, wrecking a display of fancy lamps. The storm left one citizen with only an alarm clock-still running-which he found 10 m from where his house had stood. – Excerpt from 'The Canadian Weather Trivia Calendar' by David Phillips. © Environment Canada
