A heavy Wet Snow in Manitoba
|By: plapman, 9:38 AM GMT on October 06, 2012||+0|
Today will be partly cloudy with a high of 45F. Winds from the West at 5 to 15 mph.
Tonight will be mostly cloudy as the low drops below freezing to 30F. Thewinds from the WSW at 10 to 15 mph.
yesterday I braved the cool windy day and took Abbey for a walk on the downtown route. If we'd have taken to the gopher trails she sure would have been a cold wet mess when we returned home.
The nice neat windrow of leaves turned out to be a bad thing. They are now a wet frozen windrow. I did manage to put them in a pile but with the leaf insulation they'll probably stay that way untill spring unless it warms up and I can spread them a bit to dry. We did fare better than southeastern Manitoba where over 3500 homes were without electricity. From what I've heard on the news over 250 poles were down as well as 50 lines. Manitobans aren't prepared for the heavy wet snow like they get in eastern Canada. Luckily ,ike the east,it looks like it will all melt in a few days with temps rising to the mid 50's next week.
When I visited my daughter in Newfoundland last September I told her Istoled teir winters as we had a mild winter last year. I think it's time to package it up and send it back to her.:)
I'm still at a standstill with the medal project. I just mount them so that they can be removed from the ribbon easily and repolpolish them and clearcoat them in the spring or find a heated garage to do the work in. Not working does have disadvantages. While I was working I always had access to a heeated workshop.

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. :)
