The City of Saskatoon is planning for the strong possibility that Saskatoon will be hit by a severe winter storm this weekend. This includes lots of snow on Saturday and Sunday and high winds. There is the possibility that a severe enough storm could result in power disruptions due to wet, heavy snow interfering with power lines.
We all need prepare for the possibility that we might need to stay home for a few days and plan accordingly. This may cause additional hardships for older adults.
