Retired and loving it. If I'd have known about retirement befor I started my 40 year career with the government of Manitoba I'd have retired first. :)

Today will be sunny with a southerly wind at 20 km/h (12 mph) in the afternoon. Today's high will be 1C(34F).
Tonight will start clear but there will be increasing cloudiness after midnight. The wind will start southerly at 30 km/h (19 mph) then become westerly at 20 km/h (12 mph) overnight. The low will be -2C(28F).
The roads were terrible yesterday. The city decided not to plow the streets. It must have been a money saving effoet so as not to have to pay overtime for employees. I think their plan will backfire. Yesterday while the snow was soft and wet it would have been easy to move but now the areas with traffic is packed into a solid sheet and will be frozen into ice.
I had to cut my walk with Abbey short yesterday. The traveled areas of the roads were very slippery and the untraveled area covered in 4 inches of wet snow. I guess prairie people aren't used to eastern type wet heavy snow. Today I'm going to have to dif out the ice creepers for my boots when I take Abbey out.
I must have been up too early yesterday. The Queen sent me for naps twice yesterday when I was getting grouchy. her idea worked and I felt better each time when I got up after a 1-2 hour nap. The Queen knows best but I won't tell her that. :)
It's just about time for me to bake another cake. The one I did the other day is just about gone. I'll have to get the Queen to pick me up the ingedients for the peanut butter icing or make an entry for the Cake Boss series and make a bouble cake, one chocolate and one peanut butter and gently swrirl the 2 together before baking. As I said before if I start baking it won't be long before the Queen has a hard time getting me through a door. :)
