Stratford News Local region endures overnight winter blast SHARE ON: Ethan Rabidoux, staff Tuesday, Feb. 18th, 2014 Old Man Winter lashed the region overnight. Our area got 10 centimeters of snow with even more coming down out there. The lousy weather is expected to cause problems at Pearson Airport. About three-thousand flights were delayed and 12-hundred cancelled in the U-S yesterday, with most of the delays in Chicago. The US Midwest was pounded by the same storm that’s made its way into Southern Ontario. If you’re heading to the airport today, check your flight status prior to leaving. This can be done by calling the airport or by going online.
