I guess not, but it is not such a terrible thing.

Why should there be a condolence though?What happened today happened because of human error.

Leave the condolences for people who were not the perpetrators to their own injuries.

Hills, low visibility, ice, heavy traffic. Some serious injuries. No sympathy.

Gotcha.

That's fine. Us Custodians always come to school regardless. If a kid was sent to a school and they closed, we would let them in and arrange for a ride home or they can sit and wait for the day. There will always be someone at a school.

Wow dude really?! I bet you more than half the people involved in that accident were probably hit by someone behind them after they stopped.

Go watch Bambi you might learn a few things.

Yeah, I should've worded it "absolutely necessary" which for many is decidedly inflexible.

Its strange though, so many jobs and industries now are "continuous" 24/7 operations with staff working harder, longer hours, odd shifts, and inflexible schedules.

Remember all that talk that in the future technology would result in people working less hours?

Anyway imo the 24/7 work life isn't properly suited for this type of environment. Although Albertans are real troopers when it comes to showing up. Most places people wouldn't end up at work on days like this. Whole cities would be shutdown under todays conditions.

Very true. Yet all the same, I felt damn near guilty leaving work an hour early to beat rush hour.

In all fairness I can see why the drivers are so bad. Listening to the morning news and they are talking as if we had freezing rain and you are going to slide all over the place. I drove around the city for a couple hours and simply put you just need to slow down a bit. Why get everyone in a panic. We live in Edmonton, snow falls.

If everyone ran snow tires our roads would be much safer.

I'd go to a much cheaper alternative first, make everyone that has never seen snow before take a winter driving course.

Indeed, it's because the "system" was basically North-South and went in a NorthWest-ish direction, Westlock was under it longer then anyone.
