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.

Today's Weather Trivia:
1944: Dominion Day was celebrated in Ottawa, ON, with almost pre-war
enthusiasm by 1,000s of government workers. They jammed local beaches and
picnic grounds, headed to golf links, tennis courts, and bowling greens, and
crowded onto trains and streetcars. Most motorists stayed close to home to
save precious gasoline coupons, but some used up several to get out of the
city.
