Canada Day is here!
So today is the day. The weather isn't too great at the moment but we have our fingers crossed for sunny skies. I forgot to add that we are having a couple special guests today for our Canada celebrations. Herb Pepperdine, one of the miners trapped in the 1958 "Bump" for almost 9 days, and Ralph Henwood, retired miner and mine inspector for the Springhill Mines. When these two get together, the stories start to fly. They are known for their funny, yet detailed stories. So if you really want an idea of what it was like to work 15,000 feet down in the number two mine, come out this afternoon, and listen to these guys talk!
