People are getting weak in this province.

This isn't exactly directed at you. I've been a few places around the province the past two weeks and I'm hearing about snow days a lot.

-35 now, used to be -40 when I was in school. The main issue was the road conditions and the cold. The highways were icy and the gravel road were not plowed yet. Monday we had 1 bus get stuck and was an hour and a half later while all the others were 30 minutes late because they had to wait for stragglers at the transfer station. We were also at below -35 yesterday morning.
