Today's weather trivia: 22 September


1999: Ducks Unlimited Canada estimated a record-breaking 105 million birds
would migrate this year-more than they have ever counted since 1950. The
previous record was 92 million in 1997. Lots of rain in the prairie pothole
region across North America explained the high numbers. The best time to
look for migrating waterfowl is when winds from the north start kicking in
during northerly winds and the weather turns cold.

1944: Travelling at a terrific speed, a twister cut a 0.5-km-wide swath
across the countryside on both sides of the Ottawa River, mowing down
several buildings and 1,000s of trees. The freak windstorm was accompanied
by heavy hail and torrential rain. It originated near Haley's Station in
Ontario's Renfrew County, swept northward, jumped the Ottawa River, and
lifted just north of Shawville, QC.

1955: In Calgary, AB, 40,000 residents were expected to escape the city
during Operation Lifesaver, a civil-defence test. Although an early-season
snowstorm cut off a designated escape route, huge numbers of Calgarians
left. In a 100-square-block area, a reporter found only 2 who would not take
part. One had a sick wife who could not be moved; the other thought it all
"a lot of nonsense."

1910: During an intense noon-hour storm, the second storey of a building
being erected in Cochrane, ON, blew to the ground, killing 1 worker and
injuring several others. The wind literally lifted the upper storey like a
balloon. The foreman, climbing down a ladder at the time, felt the building
going. He fell but escaped with only a few bruises.

Today's weather trivia: 18 September


1903: Over 40 mm of rain curtailed mining operations around Dominion Creek,
YK. Earlier there had been no water and no work. When rains did come, they
created a tidal wave sweeping away wheelbarrows, packsaddles, and grub, and
flooding mines. The rain damaged the Caribou Hotel's roof, in spite of last
summer's efforts to waterproof it. One customer slept with an umbrella over
his head.
