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's Weather Trivia
April 15 1834:
According to the Gleaner newspaper, the Isabella was struck by lightning while at berth in the Saint John, NB, harbour. The bolt carried away the fore and main topmast and shattered the starboard side of the deck, before exiting under the fore chains. Lightning bolts struck twice, the first time making a sailor insensible.
