Today was a soaker, heavy rain all day with only brief interruptions here and there. Still many are on the lawn in front of Parliament for the show. Hopefully tonight at 10PM the fireworks will not be washed out. The barges are set up on the Ottawa river below Parliament Hill. The Snowbirds acrobatic RCAF Jets have been delayed because of the rain and they performed at 7pm instead of noon time. They just buzzed our building twice. Always fun to see them

Here are some decorations around the my street.

Good ole Boushey, the neighbourhood grocery store, they have been at that location on Elgin Street since 1890, same Lebanese family. A very nice place with lots of gourmet foods. They have a lot of regulars and many famous politicians as clients, all retired but it is nice to say hello to them.
