Weather Trivia of the Day and 46 Years With the Queen

August 31 2005
Remnants of Hurricane Katrina dumped up to 100 mm of rain on southern Ontario and Quebec, setting daily records at Ottawa and Montreal. Montreal escaped flooding as rain fell over many hours, but wind knocked a tree onto a car. In Kingston, ON, winds uprooted trees, tore down a power line, and damaged homes. Traffic crept through 1-m-deep water. Sidewalks and streets were submerged, swamping cars.

Today is the 46th anniversary for the Queen and me. That's a long time to be together. Our oldest daughter will be 44 in December. I keep telling her she's getting old.:)
