Thunderstorm halts Country Thunder music festival in Saskatchewan

Thunderstorm halts Country Thunder music festival in Saskatchewan CRAVEN, Sask. — The Country Thunder music festival in Saskatchewan lived up to its name Saturday night when a thunderstorm rolled in and stopped the show. Just four songs into Travis Tritt's set, organizers decided to shut everything down as the storm headed towards the concert site in Craven. While the storm was not as fierce as feared, there was hail, heavy rain and strong winds, and Tim McGraw's show was cancelled as well. Country Thunder's marketing director Gerry Krochak told CKRM radio that McGraw and his band were still ready to perform later in the evening, but the band's gear on stage was badly damaged.

Area 51 is the top-secret Air Force facility long associated in the public mind with extra-terrestrials and UFOs. It lies deep in the desert 150 miles from Las Vegas. It's lined with signs warning the curious to keep out.

Last month, a college student launched a Facebook page he called “Storm Area 51.”

“Let's see them aliens,” it says. “They can't stop all of us.” Though 3 million people signed up, the creator said it was all a joke.

More than 6 million companion animals enter shelters in the U.S. every year, according to the ASPCA. About 1.5 million shelter animals are put down, and about 3.2 million are adopted.
