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

Happy Friday my weather-loving friends! Doesn’t the sunshine this morning feel wonderful? It was so gloomy the last few days that when I woke up to sunshine it just felt so good.

The nice temperatures and sunshine should make some of these restrictions a little more tolerable. If we can just make it a few more weeks and get some more jabs in arms we might just be able to put this coronapocalypse behind us.

I encourage you to get out and do something that you love whether it’s going for a bike ride, BBQing something delicious, or curling up in a deck chair with a good book. Try to do something that breaks the day-to-day cycle and brings you some joy. I want to believe that the worst of this virus will be behind us soon and we can get back to being together.
