If you thought you had it the worst when it comes to this sudden winter storm that has shut down the entire city, consider the people who actually have to travel in this weather.

The poor souls that don't have the opportunity to call into work sick and take a personal day at home, but instead have to go outside and attempt to wipe all the snow and ice off their cars and hit the road.

I have been sitting in the Montreal airport for 19.5 hours trying to get to either Toronto or Edmonton. @WestJet says nothing is going out and they want everyone to be safe. All airlines want that. Have now seen 4 Air Canada flights leave to Toronto. Very frustrating.

WOW AGAIN @WestJet reroutes my flight due to weather (understandable) but then leaves passengers stranded at Quebec City airport without a representative to assist in rebooking flights #worstcustomerservice

Sort of misleading. You cancelled both my wife's flights but only rescheduled one of them. She is uncertain if she'll be able to leave tomorrow to Montréal.

Those of us that (luckily) don't have a flight we're missing today have still taken the opportunity to complain about the weather.

Montreal is pretty much closed today. Overnight we had 31 cm of snow and another 10 is expected today. All schools are closed. No snow day in the tech sector as its work from home day.
