Today's weather trivia: 29 September


2003: A 1.5-metre storm surge from Hurricane Juan resulted in the highest
water level ever recorded in Halifax (NS) harbour. Had Juan hit just a few
hours sooner, the surge could have been 0.5 metres higher and caused more
extensive damage. Juan also forced the evacuation of the Canadian Hurricane
Centre in Dartmouth where the 19-floor building swayed so badly, forecasters
became nauseated.

Today's weather trivia: 28 September


2007: A bighorn-sheep hunter slipped and fell 15 m into a gorge near
Nordegg, AB. With no kindling and desperate for warmth, he set his shirt on
fire. As hypothermia began setting in, he felt warm (not a good sign)
despite the rain, snow, and cold winds he endured. He was trapped in the
mountain canyon for 3 days before rescuers plucked him out by helicopter.
