  1. Do residents of Churchill evacuate some how prior to a storm such as the current one? I log on twice a day to see what’s going on. I can’t believe the wind. I can’t imagine how serious the conditions. I’m somewhat spoiled…… I live in Sarasota. Florida however I grew up in Montreal so I do remember the winter, nothing like this….. I’ll pray for everyone’s safety.
