A look at today’s Edmonton weather by Environment Canada.

I’m currently sitting in a lineup of over 20 000 people waiting for my chance to book a vaccination appointment. If you’re sitting in the cue with me, good job and thank you!

Today is also the last day of in-school classes for K-6 students. Monday morning I will be challenging finding a way to make at-home learning work while still working a full-time job. Who’s with me?

I’m hopeful this will be the last time we have to go through this. I’m hopeful this will be the light at the end of the tunnel we’ve all been waiting for.

Today is going to be gorgeous so get out and enjoy it! The weekend is not looking spectacular for getting out and having fun, but it gives us the rain we desperately need so I won’t complain.
