The Vancouver Winter Games start on Feb 12, just 21 days from now! I'm excited to see all the sports as well as the region where my Mom & sister live :) There won't be much about Kelowna, but British Columbia in general is just beautiful.
The Olympic Torch will be making its way through Kelowna next Monday & Tuesday. When I spoke with my mom this morning, she let me know that the fire chief (now retired) from the Okanagan Fire (when my parents had to evacuate) will be honored as a torch bearer for the relay through Kelowna. His name is Zimmerman, I think. My mom met his wife yesterday at lunch & got to tell her it was my dad that had made the stained glass cross for the fire station. It was a thank you for saving most of the neighborhood during the big fire - including my folks' house :)
Anyway - I'm really looking forward to the Games. Apolo Ono, Shaun White and a whole new batch of athletes to follow! Yay!
If you're not a huge fan, don't worry - I'll keep you posted on my blog :)
