At Morley, AB, winds blew the roof off the Nakoda Lodge. SaskPower said the gusts affected performance of its 116 wind turbines near Swift Current.

The Moon is at first quarter today, indicating that it is one-quarter of the way through its month-long cycle of phases. Sunlight illuminates half of the lunar disk that faces Earth, so it looks as though someone has sliced the Moon in half.
