Today's Weather Trivia
May 26 1941:
Just as forest fires in the bushlands of northern Ontario and Quebec were being controlled, news came that 3 men from Bergeronnes, QC, had drowned after running into the Rivière du Sault aux Cochons to escape the flames. An Ontario MLA said that fire losses around Sudbury, ON, would cost the government $1 million in revenue and $5 million in timber losses.

That's odd; I was going to see if you were going to get rain or snow today, but your weathersticker isn't linked to anything! :(

Have a good day!
