Wordless Wednesday: Record One Day Snowfall in Montreal

From sun up to sun down, the snow just kept on falling for one day during our trip to Montreal this past December. Well, their really was no sun up, just alot of snow and a grey sky. A record accumulation of 40 cm of snow in one snowfall on December 27, 2012 falling just 2 days short of a white Christmas. The record was 39 cm in ’69! It was cold, but it was fun…Makes the weather we are having in NYC at the moment seem like a walk in a spring park.

Little Miss and Me enjoying the flurries - did you know it's warmest when it snows?

    Yes, and I was there that day. In fact, I was driving into Montreal through the snowstorm for our Christmas family gathering. What a mess!

        Well, it also depended where you were. My uncle on the South Shore could not even see his car under the snow. Coming from the west, it was not as bad – still, it was a pretty heavy snow storm.

      It was actually quite “warm” at that point. And we thought the snow was going to stop, but t just kept falling and falling!

    That looks like so much fun (except the shoveling part)! I wish it were snowing here in Washington State :(

    That was a lot of words for a Wordless post :p

    Looks like you guys had a lot of fun in the snow. Especially little miss and Mr. Bam.

    I’m glad we don’t have that much here. It is nice for short periods but I don’t really want it to stick around.

      Dixie Dog is my sister’s and she seems to like the snow…kinda. Let’s just say she didn’t get walked as much as she usually does. Poor wee fur balls

      Thankfully I’m back in NYC where it is only -4 as opposed to -41! No snow here, just cold. Daydreaming about NOLA helps… :)

    I think we only enjoyed it cause we got to leave. Whenever I am back in Mtl, I don’t know how I grew up there. I love the city, but I’m a wuss for the cold…And I melt in the summer humidity 😉

  13. […] I was born and raised in Montreal I don’t think I ever really got used to the winters. With a record one day snowfall on the island, Mr BAM was out shoveling with my Dad everyday and even had to push my Dad’s car and […]
