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. :)

Around Vancouver, BC, production of a movie starring Harrison Ford was held up because it wasn't stormy enough, putting production about 10 days behind schedule. The Vancouver scenes called for bad weather, so producers had to bring in rainmaking machines to put around the house. Further, they had to relocate to different rooms in the house to avoid the sunshine coming through the windows.

it looks like the storm will pass the SE of the Northern Edge but give southeastern Manitoba and north western Ontario blizzard conditions.
Luckily for me as we've put our snow clearing man on standby until next winter.
I'm having to shorten my daily walks with Abbey. I think she's developed arthritis and after a long running in the snow she comes home limping. It's sad to see her climb the basement stairs favoring one leg. On her last visit to the vet the vet guesstimated her age to be around 10 years.
