Good luck to my Canadian brothers and sisters.  I'd bring coffee and doughnuts and spend some time on the line with you if I was closer.

The mine workers shutting down that mine in West Virginia were overwhelmed with food and gift orders phoned in to local pizza and chicken places.

The weather in Edmonton tonight will be 20 degrees F.  Tough conditions to walk the line.
