1953: Weeks of drenching rains washed out bridges and flooded highways,
threatening to keep Manitobans away from a provincial vote. Returning
officers to the east and north of Riding Mountain National Park complained
about difficulties in getting ballot boxes and themselves through the mud to
the polls. People guessed that the vote wouldn't be counted until after
flood waters receded.

1920: While every able-bodied man in northern New Brunswick worked night and
day fighting wildfires, other residents prayed for rain. Their prayers were
answered. A heavy downpour lasting 2 hours aroused the hopes of firefighters
in Restigouche County, where fires burned the fiercest. Other parts of the
province received enough moisture to bring some of the worst fires under
control.

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

another man escaped uninjured, but the single bolt killed 4 horses and
several cattle.

2004: The best thing about Manitoba's May weather was that it finally ended
when the month ended. Miserable rain forced the cancellation of outdoor

losses-at this time last year there had been at least 30 good patio days,
compared to 2 this year.
