It sounds to me that no one in my area is going to receive their meals, because they are closed! So no inclement weather preparing OR delivering of meals on wheels.
When my Mom and the cat were getting meals on wheels they were given a couple of blizzard packs with shelf stable items for days when meals on wheels had to cancel.

It is a great program and in my area it costs about the same as it would cost to buy the groceries. I think Mom paid $165.00/month for 5 lunches and 5 dinners each week. In this area you can also get it every other day for those folks that can do some meal prep or have other assistance.

Reading the comments here are 'chilling' to say the least. I'm glad I don't have to contend with that cold weather. (Just a wimp)

Although it didn't freeze last night, it was cold -- 41F first thing this morning. The sun is out and it's up to 50 already.

I hope the bitter cold for y'all up north will be gone soon.

Our local Meal-on-Wheels program advertises that it is available for those recovering from surgery. I take that to mean you can call them if you are having surgery and set it up for a certain time period. I don't think you can call them and just get a meal here and there.

Bikini line staples and a nurse will be taking them out. I could do it, but I can't see them.

Do they use one of those office supply staple removers? I've removed stitches, my own and a previous cat's, haven't had staples.

We're up to a balmy 9.5F. All area schools were closed, but they're resuming today's after-school activities.

No they need something that crimps them up and out. Here is a picture

It doesn't. Easiest part of the whole thing.

Weather is still the same. Getting boring!
