Back to a snow buried Montreal after our short visit to Québec City. Montreal is still recovering from last Thursday’s record single day snow fall of 45 cm. It was a beautiful sunny winter day today but the strong wind gave a wind chill of minus 20 and caused blowing snow across the city. Not that pleasant to be walking around, but made for some nice photo’s.
So after brunching on avenue Duluth, we took a quick walk around the adjacent streets on the Plateau.
There were a lot of people on their way to enjoy some cross country skiing, although they could have skied from their front door
Others had an even easier and fun way to get around town…
Cycling is probably not as fun…
Although you have to find your bike first !!!
The iconic Montreal staircases make for more shoveling after a heavy snow fall…
I hope the folks living here have another entrance…
They say that after 20cm of snow the cost for snow removal is around $17 million and takes on average 4 days. With 45cm to cart away, they are saying it will take about 10 days to clear all the streets.

Although today is day 365 of my 365 project, being a leap year I will be posting a bonus day of images tomorrow.
Thanks for stopping by. Until next time.
