Thank you Rob! The weather wasn't the best today but still a good day to celebrate freedom in this great Country, It was a cold day people were wearing hoodies and toques all the Canada Day celebrations were canceled due to the weather we have been having lots of rain in the last two weeks.
Jacob, we had the exact opposite weather here in Ontario. It was hot and humid! We were supposed to get thunderstorms but thankfully they didn't come and our annual family reunion went off as planned. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday.
