1842: A storm left 12 cm of snow on the ground near the Canada-United States
border in Québec. Hundreds of sheep perished in the snow and cold.
Conditions reminded old-timers of the snow and cold in the summer of 1816.
That year, known as the year without summer, several people froze their
hands and feet in June.

Today's Weather Trivia:
1834: The weather was unseasonably cold across eastern Canada. The ice on
many ponds was "thick as a penny-piece." The frost was strong, and streets
were white with snow. Swallows and other small birds perished in great
numbers. In a New Brunswick paper, it said: "one might imagine, that we had
all, like so many Rip Van Winkles, slept the whole summer, and awaked in the
month of November."

Today's Weather Trivia:
2008: Heavy rains, 35 mm in 12 hours, fell near Pangnirtung, NU. The rains
along with temperatures 8 degrees warmer than normal and strong winds caused
rapid snowmelt that carved a 10 m channel through permafrost right down to
bedrock. The outflow washed out a road and 2 bridges over the Duvall River.
Hundreds of residents had no access to municipal services.

Solar Activity:
Solar activity is expected to be at very low levels with a chance for

AURORA ('Northern Lights') WATCH:
The geomagnetic field is expected to be at quiet levels on day one (08 June)
and on the beginning of day two (09 June). Midday on day two, active to
minor
storm levels are expected as the CME, associated with todays M2/2N flare
from Region 1226, becomes geoeffective. With the arrival of this CME, there
is a slight chance for major storm periods at high latitudes. On day three
(10 June), as the effects of the CME continue, active levels, with chance
for minor storm periods, are also expected.

1958: The largest single-incident loss of life in the 135-year history of

2005: Over 200 mm of rain had fallen in southern Alberta, filling rivers,

ecstatic. In June, Calgary got 247.6 mm of rain (normal was 79.8 mm), the
wettest month ever recorded. More than 2,000 Calgarians fled their homes as
floodwaters filled basements with foul-smelling sewage and raised concern
