Where are we today ?
Celebrating Canada Day officially on July 1st Canada is 146 years old this year. At John and Lea's They have had a large Canada Day Party on the Saturday just before July first every year and it seems to work out best for more people. Well over 100 people again this year.
The weather forecast for today was to be thunderstorms, after all the rain we had yesterday looked like it might be kinda wet. The Nith river water level across the road is getting pretty high.
