1877: The Rondeau News reported about a fish shower near Harwich, ON: "I
filled the pail (with fresh fish) . . . and having deposited my burden
returned to collect the remainder . . . As to whether these now famous
fishes fell 6 feet or 6,000, I know not. One thing I know, that they were
scattered for about three-quarters of a mile." In the previous 2 days,
rainfall totalled more than 15 mm.

Today's weather trivia: 2 November


1926: Northern Ontario endured the season's first real snowstorm when slushy
snow and freezing rain fell, attended by high winds. Hornepayne recorded 20
cm of snow. Several northern towns were isolated temporarily, when added
wind-loading felled dozens of telegraph poles and miles of ice-encrusted
lines, especially south of Sudbury. Work gangs laboured for days to
unscramble the tangled wires.

1929: A strong, northeasterly winter blast with wet snow wreaked havoc on
Winnipeg, MB. Unable to bear the weight of the water-soaked snow, trees and
light, power, and telephone lines toppled to the ground, narrowly missing
pedestrians and cars. It took several days to repair the damage. City
police, on duty to control Halloween revelers, instead kept onlookers away
from live wires.

service. Suddenly there was an explosion, and the church was in need of a
new stove.

in a field 2 km from his zoo.
