Like most (all?) people in Montreal, I woke up this morning, looked out my window, and saw one thing: lots and lots of snow.\nREAD ALSO: If You Live In Montreal, You Gotta Go See This House Decorated In Thousands Of Christmas Lights\nAnd, I don't know why, but I was absolutely blown away by how beautiful it was. Legit, it looks like we're living in a snow globe, or some kind of winter wonderland.\nA photo posted by Emlyn|Montreal|West of Ireland (@mutenye) on Dec 12, 2016 at 7:14am PST\nThis isn't the first snow of the year in Montreal - that happened in November - but it's every bit as magical, if not more.\nWhich I get is kind of a weird thing to say. Usually, I'm all like, "snow!? More like s'no, am I right?" but recently I've been really feeling how magical Montreal looks under that thick white blanket of snow.\nA photo posted by olivier martel savoie (@une_olive) on Dec 12, 2016 at 7:14am PST\nI'm not the only one who thinks this way, either.\nUsually, pretty much everyone I know complains about the snow. But this year, everyone's said the same thing: it's made the city look incredibly beautiful. Like something out of a movie, almost.\nA photo posted by ~✨Elaina✨~ (@doughnutdogwarrior) on Dec 12, 2016 at 6:36am PST\nI couldn't quite put my finger on why this shift happened, but then I realized that Montreal's been going through some stuff lately.\nA photo posted by * * Trav-man Atl .

At least for a little while.\nA photo posted by Andrew Taylor (@montrealandy) on Dec 12, 2016 at 5:38am PST\nAdd mtlblog on Snapchat.
