Today's Weather Trivia:
1921: Old settlers in west-central Saskatchewan couldn't recall a fiercer
wind, rain, and hail storm. Hail destroyed 2/3rds of the crops and winds
smashed windows and levelled small barns, shacks, and garages. Unsheltered
cattle were badly knocked about and poultry and birds were killed. Missing
washtubs, pails, and buggies were found in strange places. A bundle of hay
hung from telephone wires.

Today's Weather Trivia:
1961: A boy in Ontario survived when lightning killed his Labrador dog. The
teenager was in a deckchair when a lightning bolt struck a nearby tree and
travelled along a chain to the dog's collar. The dog died instantly. The
boy, who was stroking the dog's head, went rigid and passed out. Revived in
about 2 minutes, he recalled hearing a loud bang, described by his father as
the sound of cannon.

2004: An editor of The Daily News in Kamloops, BC, reported that his stove
had exploded in a blinding white flash. Lightning had indeed struck an

discharging out the stove. Wrote the editor: "...had it happened a few

Kraft Dinner. What a way to go!"

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.
