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. :)

April 26 1937:
Floodwaters from the Thames River in London, ON, inundated basements and entire homes. Residents escaped through second-storey windows and off veranda roofs. April had nearly 175 mm of rain, 125 mm in one day. One person rowed by a haystack where some cows and pigs were camped out. The pigs swam after his boat and tried to climb in. Frightened cats that ran into basements drowned.
