The Olympic Torch was going to be in our area today -- well sort of. Both of the places that there would be runners were about fifteen minutes drive from our home. So, we opted to go to the town where it was apt to be much less crowded simply because it's a small town.
The torch's appearance in this bustling little town was to be all of eight (yes, eight) minutes long. It was short but sweet and the crowd that turned out for it was huge!
It was neat to be a part of the support to the Olympic Games. It was even cooler to see how many people braved the -2C weather to stand on the roadsides and cheer the runners on.
Because we remember moments, not days...
