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 mainly sunny with fog patches dissipating this morning. The high will be 8C(46F) and 13C(55F) over western sections of the forecast area.
Tonight will start clear but there will be increasing cloudiness after midnight. The wind will be southeast at20 km/h (12 mph) and the low will be 2C(36F).
Spring seems to have come to the prairie. Yesterday when I took Abbey on the downtown route I should have worn rubber boots. My feet were soaked when we got home. I was also greeted by 2 snowmen the grandaughter had helped the 2 GGranddaughter build in the front yard. I'm afraid those poor guys won't have a very long life span. :) I'll have to snap a photo today so the girls will always remember them.
It's funny, the daughter in NFLD always bragged about their warm winters but today with our high of 8c(46F) and their's of -5C(23F) we have them beat. I've told the daughter that when I visited last summer I brought a suitcaase full of sunny manitoba with me but left with their warm winters, I did leave the snow there though. I think I'll keep the NFLD winters here. I hope the police don't investigate and charge me with theft.:)
