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 will be mainly sunny but there will be fog patches at times this morning. The wind northwest at 20 km/h (12 mph) will become light this afternoon. The high will be -10C(14F). The wind will make it feel like -25C(-13F) this morning.
Tonight will bring increasing cloudiness early this evening and a low of -16C(3F).
It looks like I'll be moving snow again this morning. We didn't get much snow after I cleared the driveway but the wind blew a bit back in. The Queen didn't go into work yesterday but will today. She had call a cab to pick her up but it was stuck on the other side of town so she called in and said she'd work her shift today.
Although the snow storm was small compared to the 1966 storm but the trans-Canada highway was closed for a while due to poor visibility. I just checked and the highway has been reopened again but snow covered slippery section remain.
he highway between here and Winnipeg can be really bad between here and Winnipeg. the only trees to block the wind have been planted along the highway otherwise the only trees are miles from the highway giving the wind a good chance to carry snow and reduce visibility.
The grandson's car was a hit at the youth club he gos to. He now has other boys asking him to make cars for them. We should have patented the process and sold small wooden cars at the bakery. :)
The special at the bakery today will be cherry bit cupcakes with chocolate icing.
