After the storm: Quirky photos of Montreal under the snow

Nearly a week ago, a major blizzard left everything in Montreal covered with a 45 cm (18 inches) layer of snow. As if that wasn’t enough, subsequent snowfalls added 15-20 more centimeters in the days since. It’s safe to say that so far, winter has been strong this year.

With only half the streets cleared off, many areas in the city still look like a winter wonderland (except for drivers!). Wintertime can be beautiful, but it can be quite tough physically and emotionally.

Today, I went out for a walk in my neighborhood (Rosemont), trying to find  funny, quirky, everyday things in the snow.

This graffiti says: It’s Christmas, consume, you idiots. In this particular context, consume can mean: spend, buy, use up, squander.
