Oct 30th, 2016: Dry Niagara
Did you see it, didja, didja? I did.
Walked upstream to see the cofferdam, across the dry(ish) river bed to the island, and over to the Canadian side for this sort of view.
We watch them pour different colored dyes into cracks in the riverbed and watch to see where they emerged in the face of the falls.
They decided there was no way to stop the erosion of the face and clearing debris was not practical.
The final score:
Army Corps of Engineers = 0
Mother Nature = 1

I missed this one by a fair chunk, as I wasn't conceived for about another 8 months after this was taken. The first news story I remember coherently from TV stations was the fall of Skylab.
