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 see periods of snow ending this morning then cloudy and a high of -6C(21F).
Tonight will start partly cloudy then becoming cloudy overnight. The overnight low will be -11C(12F).
It looks like were paying for our mild snow-less winter now. It snowed again last night and there's more snow in the forecast for the next couple of days.
To top off the snowy predictions I blew a belt in my blower yesterday while clearing the driveway. I had blown the snow from between the 2 houses out onto the driveway so that I could blow it onto the lawns, instead of beside one of the houses not wanting to cause water damage when spring arrives. I had just finished between the houses when a belt broke. I then ha to move the darn white stuff by hand. :) The car was sitting in the driveway but without a license I couldn't get a new belt. too top it off when I checked the manual it's a 2 man job as the engine unit has to be separated from the blower to change the belt., not a pleasant thing to do in an unheated work area. I've given the SIL a call to give me a hand and maybe we can load it into the back of his truck and take it too his shop for repairs when he's off work. It's funny how things break down when you need them the most. I'm not used to moving snow by hand and with a 50+ foot long driveway it's a real chore for a 60+ year old guy who's not used to the heavy exercise as my daily walks with Abbey is the only exercise I get.
