In Portage la Prairie, letter carriers aren't the only ones braving the elements to make deliveries.
The Meals On Wheels program continues delivering prepared meals to seniors in the city, in spite of challenging street conditions.
Coordinator Shelley Caskey's dealt with calls today from concerned seniors in light of the poor weather. They've been assured the meals will be delivered, but they could be a little late.
Most Meals On wheels drivers are seniors themselves, and Caskey notes they're very dedicated to the program. While some aren't comfortable driving in poor conditions, others are, including those with four-wheel drive vehicles.
She adds if conditions became too severe, deliveries would be cancelled, but they haven't had to do that yet.
