gusting to 130 km/h. The high winds uprooted trees and ripped down
electrical wires. The Annapolis Valley was also hit hard, right in the
middle of the apple harvest.

Today's weather trivia: 9 October


2008: Go fishing or stay on shore? For the past 2 weeks in the Bay of Fundy,
lobster fishers were only able to go out every 3 days or so because of
strong, persistent winds. Each postponed day increases the risk taken by
fishers to make up lost time. Further, when winds churn up the seabed,
lobsters don't feed until the water settles down.

year. In the interim, a Michigan State police dog tracked the thief to Great
Northern Road before losing his trail.

Today's weather trivia: 7 October


2004: The fall weather was so good that it helped many in the East forget
what a rotten summer it had been. In Kitchener, this day was the warmest
ever at 25°C-some 11° above normal. Following a cool, wet summer, perfect
fall weather produced a strong crop of leaves, and the colours seemed more
vibrant than ever. Owners of small resorts and bed and breakfasts around
Ontario were delighted.
