The holidays are all about coming together and spending time with friends and family. Reflecting and
appreciating the year that is about to come to an end. However this time of year in Canada also brings
treacherous weather at times, something the folks of Chatham-Kent, Ontario, Canada quickly learnt.
Over 50 people were forced to stay overnight at a local Walmart as weather and road conditions
Some of these people lived around the corner, some were from Ohio, but none of them were allowed to
leave due to the poor conditions outdoors. The employees pulled games from the shelves and even
made warm dinners with help from the deli team. One employee even had a surprise birthday
celebration for them when the clock struck 12. Thankfully the ordeal wasn’t too bad of an experience for
those that had to go through it.
