It's Only The First Snow And Montreal Is Already Fvcked

What the hell is wrong with this city?

Every year the first snow starts falling and we look like a bunch of amateurs.

We knew it was coming, it happens every year after all. And yet somehow, the snow always manages to catch us off guard and fuck everything up.

And this isn't even a storm, it's just a few flakes. Still, the city looks completely paralyzed this morning.

The streets are covered in snow and the top layer is slightly melted, which means it's really slippery out there.

The buses are late or cancelled altogether. (Actually some drivers simply didn't feel like working this morning, so they just didn't.)

The metro system wasn't doing any better. It was shut down for what seems like the 12th time this week. I know this because I'm getting angry texts from my co-workers who are still trying to make their way in to work. This time the culprit was apparently a fire.

So basically we're getting fucked over by fire and ice at the same time. It's like Game of Thrones only it's colder and it's not very entertaining.

And it's only the first snow of the season!!!

We seriously need to toughen up, the city needs to do a better job at clearing the snow and the STM needs to stop fucking up, because it's getting ridiculous.

On that note, try to have a nice day.

As if we weren't suffering enough from the bitter cold and semi-lockdown, Environment Canada has issued a special weather statement as a winter storm approaches Quebec.

The system could dump as much as 25 cm of snow on parts of the province through Monday, according to the federal weather agency. The Weather Network, meanwhile, predicts totals could reach 30 cm.

It Has Begun — Montreal Snow Removal Crews Are Out After Our First Major Snowfall

Around 13 cm of the fluffy stuff fell on Sunday night and Monday morning.

Classic Montreal winter, striking at a moment's notice, am I right? On Sunday night through Monday morning, the city saw its first major snowfall of the season with around 13 centimetres of what quickly became wet grey mush.

With snow and slush, comes chaos on the road and that's why Mayor Valérie Plante announced on Twitter that she has called on the city's snow removal crews to mobilize for the first snow removal of the 2021-2022 cold season.

Time to mentally prepare for "significant snowfall." Environment Canada has put out a special weather statement warning of the possibility of a snow dump in Quebec this Friday.

"A low pressure system from the Great Lakes will move to lie over Southern Quebec on Friday morning," the federal agency said in the statement. "Precipitation associated with this system will reach Southern Quebec on Thursday evening and Central Quebec on Friday."

When you ride the metro you think you've seen it all when it comes to door glitches. 

Doors that won't open, doors that close into to people, and of course the doors that just can't seem to make up their mind.
