I woke up this morning to the sound of thunder and rain coming down hard on the roof.

This is my seventh Canada Day living in Ottawa - eighth if you count the one as a student ten years ago - and I can't recall ever having one that didn't get dumped on at least once during the day. Of all the bright and sunny days in the year, we chose this one. Oh well.

Update: It's 2:30 in the afternoon, it looks like sundown, and the thunder and lightning have started again. I love this town!
