Today's Weather Trivia:
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.

1856: Lightning struck a house in Chatham, NB, killing 2 young girls. The
father of one of the girls threw a barrel of flour on the fire from an

that both girls were dead. He went back in and saw them standing at a table,
holding dishes. As soon as he touched them, they both fell dead.
