2010 Olympic Torch Relay

Today, the Olympic Torch made its way through our little community.




The torch only paused here, and then it was on its way again.

The relay has lasted over 100 days so far and will finish in Vancouver on February 12.
The torch has passed through over 1,000 communities and places of interest and has been carried by 12,000 different people as it has made its way across the country.
Approximately 90 per cent of Canada's population has been within a one-hour drive of seeing the Olympic Flame as it has been carried through each of our Provinces and Territories.

I love how the relay worked out this time around. My sister was one of the lucky ones to carry the torch. We went to see her and I couldn't believe how decked out all the houses along the route were. I wish I would have thought to show some spirit and get some Cnandian flags and stuff. But with work, therapy and then driving across town i was way too busy. but I got to see her hold the torch. Very exciting and lots of fun!

Ah, you did go after all. I know you said the weather was not too wonderful for the pass through your town.

History in the making.
