This winter we did not have as much as snow in the previous years, and the temperatures did not go below -25 or -30 degrees Celsius for more than a day or two. Usually January and February are the coldest months of the year in Montreal. The climate is changing fast and we are faced with what they'd call irrational weather or weather shocks.

We have witnessed the temperature dropping significantly from one day to another. We went from +1 Celsius to way below -20 degrees in less than 24 hours. This abnormalities will affect the agriculture. I guess we will less locally grown veggies, fruits, plants, etc. In addition, less snow means less water for the lands. Luckily Canada has plenty fresh water sources so it won't be facing a draught during the rest of the year.

When I say it has snow less, it does not mean we did not get snow. We did get a fair share. During the last snow storm we were blasted with close to 70 cm of snow. Needless to add that it was not a fun day to drive around running errands when the storm hit the city.

Nor the day after when everyone had to shovel their cars out of the snow. Not even the second day after, when parking turned into a problem given that the snow removal had started and one side of each road had to be free of cars.

Those who got late to their cars were faced with a ticket or even had their cars towed if they the snow plower got there first.

Today it was one of those day when you have to choose between taking the car or the bike to work. In case you were wondering what were you looking at in the photo, that's a car under that huge pile of snow!

Sort:  

Gosh that's a whole load of snow, we're having similar drastic temperature changes here, from super hot to sudden drops in temp!

It seems that these weather shocks are happening all over the world now.

Fun picture of the car buried below snow :) I just moved to Utah in the US and was expecting more snow this winter given that we are at nearly 5000' elevation but we have not had much snow at all. The town that I grew up in Alaska though just set a record this past week with 23 1/2" of snow in a 24 hour period and over 50" of snow over the weekend! My parents were totally snowed into their house.

OMG! Hope they were fine! Did they have to be rescued or that is normal in there? I can't even imagine how it must be to open the door and see a wall of snow!

A good Samaritan neighbor who owns a front-end loader plowed out all the driveways on their road and another neighbor with a snowblower cleared the path to the door. Small towns come together in times like that.

Wow that's a lot of snow to cover a car. I'm wondering how people goes to work when there is so much snow.

They take the bus or the metro if their own car is buried in snow.
