You Barely Fit in a Screen Shot Canada!

 

Good Morning Bonjour Canada! 

Over the summer we changed computer systems! The Good news is the new system will be able to give us some spiffy photographs like this one!

We are still ironing out some kinks this week, which we will do this week.

You can look forward to the Canada Wide Forecast returning Monday November 4th 2013!

 

Your pals!
