2008: Over a 6-week period, Victoria recorded a paltry 0.6 mm of rain.
Gardeners groaned but hikers thrilled at trekking the usually mucky Cape
Scott Trail. Tofino had water restrictions. Conditions here were even drier
than 2 years ago when the town trucked in water. The fire hazard was high to
extreme. Luckily temperatures hovered near seasonal averages. Otherwise
forests might have been ablaze.

Today's Weather Trivia:
2005: You know it's hot when thieves start stealing ice. In Renfrew, ON,
about 100 bags of ice disappeared from a large outdoor cooler at a highway
restaurant. With temperatures of 33°C, the police knew the evidence was long
gone, melted away in the blistering July heat. Instead, they would keep an
eye out for any large quantity of plastic ice bags.

1930: The fiercest heat wave in years was scorching the Canadian prairies.
Several people drowned in lakes and rivers as thousands tried to escape the

suffering temporary insanity due to the heat attempted to kill himself with
a razor; when his wife tried to stop him, he inflicted serious wounds to her
face and throat.

Today's Weather Trivia:
1925: An intense lightning storm in central Ontario was at its worst along
the Spanish River. While driving their animals to shelter, 2 men from
Sudbury were struck by a bolt of lightning. It killed one man instantly. The
other was blinded and doctors doubted he would recover his sight. Close by,
another man escaped uninjured, but the single bolt killed 4 horses and
several cattle.

Look for the planet Mercury low in the west beginning about a half-hour
after sunset. It looks like a fairly bright star, but it is so low in the
sky that it is tough to spot. This evening, it is just to the upper right of
the fingernail crescent Moon.
