When it rains, it pours! After Thursday's event, at Market Square, in Parry Sound, with speakers Norm Miller, MPP Parry Sound-Muskoka, Jo-Anne Demick, Executive Director of Community Living; and Maureen Porter, another parent who deals with the everyday realities of Autism, the clouds and the rain came quickly and did not let up until Saturday night. Thanks to Eric Granz (former road crew member of New Brunswick and Quebec) for organizing the Parry Sound event and everyone who came out before the 36 hours of rain came!
Personally, heat and cold are fine to deal with, by either adding or subtracting layers, but rain (along with wind) is one of those weather elements which I have not found a water repellent shoe for yet. Once the feet get wet, the water adds a few extra pounds, and the possibility of blisters occurring increases. Their is always a rational solution to every problem. In this circumstance, Terry and I elected to sit out the rain and add the kilometres to next week.A nice surprise on the road today was seeing a former teacher, Miss Pugh, from Tecumseh Public School. So, as the sign shows, Terry and I have 123 kms to Sudbury, along Highway 69 then we get to turn left and head west to Sault Ste. Marie!
