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. :)

Tonight will remain overcast with fog developing overnight. The overnight low will be -25C(-13F) with a windchill as low as -29C(-20F) caused by winds from the North at 10 to 15 km/h.
Abbey and me ventured out into the cold yesterday and took a walk along the gopher trails. I donned the old work ski doo suit and came home toasty warm.
poor Abbey ran along the shoulder of the road nd stopped occasionally looking out a the fields she loves to run in but stayed away from the snow filled ditches. Smart dog!
On our way home I saw somebody lying beside the road, he later got up and walked few steps then fell again. When we met i asked if he was OK and he said he had just slipped. I think the young man, maybe 16 or 17, was either drunk or on drugs. I stopped and kept n eye on him until he turned off the road we were on. If he'd have fallen into the deep ditch and got stuck in the snow it could have been serious as the lower part of the ditch can't be seen from the road. It's the same ditch the vehicle was stuck in a few weeks or so ago and has a steep 1:1 slope.
Comments will take a few seconds to appear.
