The temperature climbed above freezing Boxing Day in London, Ontario. It certainly was not a bitingly cold day, although the newspaper used that overworked term the other day to refer to the outside temperature.
But there was a dusting of snow and so it's beginning to look a bit like Christmas, but a day late.
Oh well, it was good weather for lining up in front of stores in the early morning hours for the Boxing Day sales. Some stores opened at 6 a.m. to cash in on the demand for sale items.
By the time the doors opened, the line-ups in front of some stores were hundreds of shoppers long.
