I got to Montreal around 5pm tonight very glad that I took the train !! It is still snowing steadily here and there is already at least 5-6 inches of snow. My hubby drove up from Connecticut to meet me here, he said as soon as he crossed the border it started snowing. Drive carefully, they don't seem to plow the roads here, his car was sliding every where on him. Good luck with your interview on Wednesday !!

Be careful walking the sidewalks in Montreal. Slippery as HECK! You're going to look like your dancing sometimes!

It's quite possible they will be AFTER the interview :)

Approved! I was nervous as hell. We got there 715 am. Group C...my wife and I were the loud ones cracking jokes and trying to lighten the mood. To the blonde consular lady..I thank You very much. I appreciate you putting up with my nerves. If this gets back to u...thank u for helping us put our family back together again. Now I have to figure out How to track my DHL. btw I guess the consulars have been getting in big ###### for allowing pickups of visas

...so I think the policy is going to change soon where DHL will be the only way to get your visa. Ill post more later.

I think they do not stop it, but do it for very important reasons only. We had a letter from my husband's surgeon, he can't have his surgery until I am there to help him out afterwards. He will need constant help for the 1st 4 weeks post-op and more than likely longer. Or we would have waited like everyone else for the DHL.

I did however see when we went to pick up the Visa, a lady packaging up all the DHL envelopes and sending them on their way. So hopefully they make it to everyone very quickly.
