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 29 March
1902: A Selkirk, MB, farmer crossed Lake Winnipeg to buy some hay for his horses. He confronted such deep snow that his horses became exhausted and could go no further. After a few hours' struggle, he came upon a ship caught in the ice the previous fall. He broke into the ship's cabin for the night. The next morning he reached a house where he was met by a search party sent out by his son.
