Blowing and drifting snow overnight caused some Hanover School Division buses to be delayed this morning and even a few got stuck.
Robert Warkentin, Director of Transportation for HSD notes the areas affected were mainly sheltered sections in the countryside where snow would have blown in.
"We have had a couple that have gotten stuck. We have had a few that have had to detour because of other stuck vehicles so we have a few that are running a little late but generally speaking, out of the 86 we are doing very well today."
Warkentin says the problem areas were mainly on country roads that hadn't had a lot of traffic on them yet but adds highways, towns and cities conditions were manageable.
"I was out this morning, in the early early morning it was quite blustery and sort of after that 5:30 into the 6:00 mark the snow stopped and conditions got considerably better and we heard from some of the people further west that it was clearing. That’s the way we went with figuring, once the snow stops and the wind dies down a little bit we’ll be alright."
As of 11:30 am Manitoba Infrastructure reports most highways in the region are still partly or completely snow covered with blowing and drifting snow.
