The Olympic Torch in Our Town

At 7:30am we hit the local diner for breakfast and then went out into the frigid
(-20C with the windchill) morning air to wait for the Torch.
The van reads -
106 Days
45,000 kms
12,000 Bearers
Check out the website for lots more wintery torch photos that will give you the shivers

The kids ran alongside the unknown (to me anyways) Torch Bearer

It was a thrill to see the flame up close

Onward to Vancouver


  1. Let the torch and its light guide us to a wonderful new year...
    Happy New Year to you & yours!

  2. In that temperature, you need a torch!!!

  3. Oh...very cool. I can't wait for the games to start. I love watching.

  4. Had no idea this was happening! Great to see it in photos!!

  5. Oh My Gosh!! one of my friends on Facebook posted some pictures of this wonderful event (she is in Vancouver!) and when I saw yours I thought to myself "i've already commented to her so i don't need to again"!!! :-) ~~sigh~~ when social networks collide!

    How fun to be able to see this so up close!!
