Do you think it'll be bad enough for the city buses to be taken off the road? They don't usually pull them but I would like to try and have a different way to get to work if it's a possibility.

kamen... I'm afraid that's a "wait-and-see" deal. Typically the buses are on the road until visibility or traction becomes a serious issue.

Hey anyone know if the school buses are cancelled ?

Just took garbage and recycling out. Coldest I have ever experienced!

According to another news article on Local 2 News school buses are cancelled for Heyden and Goulais,because the road from Hwy 556 to Wawa is closed. However schools in the affected area are open.

Question. If the hwy is closed how do the decision makers expect staff to get to these schools.

Schools have to remain open in case somebody brings their kid to school, I think.
Like if somebody dropped their kid off assuming it is open, leaves for work, and then the poor kid is stuck outside in a storm. cease all the doors are locked.
I think anyway. Pretty sure somebody told me that before. I don't know if it is accurate, but it does make sense.
