 Today's weather trivia: 25 February 1926: Afternoon rains fell in Dundas,
ON. An hour or two later, residents were astonished to see hundreds of small
fish on the ground. The majority were the size of small fry and resembled
pickerel or whitefish fry. Eyewitnesses said the creatures did not come from
the sewers, nor were they washed from the town's creek because it was
frozen. Most were satisfied the fish fell with the rain from the sky.
