Extreme 90KM/H Windstorm Is Going To Hit Parts Of Quebec Today

We can all agree that this might have actually been the worst week of winter so far. Over the course of the last few days we've experienced ice rain, regular rain, warming temperatures, sudden snowfall, an out-of-nowhere drop to below freezing temperatures and back again. We've basically been experiencing all four seasons. All that's left is a major windstorm and we'll have essentially gone through all of 2019 in one week.
