Today is a Holiday in the U.S.
It is Memorial Day, which is celebrated on the last Monday in May.
So, if you are trying to contact someone in the U.S., forget it.
Although this is a holiday set aside to remember those who served in wars, generally it's thought of as a long weekend kicking off the summer.
The lakes will be busy, as well as beaches and campgrounds.
I will barbecue in the backyard.
Hope it doesn't rain.
