You gotta love the weather in Montreal, when it's not snowing, it's raining, when it's not sunny, it's gray, like, we can't even keep up! It's our favourite thing to talk about at MTL Blog, no joke.
Double-digit temperatures are about to descend upon us this week, which is, quite frankly, about time. Starting tomorrow, it'll be 9-degrees in Montreal with temperatures looking up throughout the week.
Check it out! Saturday and Sunday, we'll get highs of 10 and 13 degrees with maybe just a little bit of rain. This great weather will continue into next week, with Monday and Tuesday projected to be 13-degrees as well.
With the weather being so nice this weekend, there are many chances for you to go out and actually do something! When was the last time you went out without having to worry about wearing a million layers?
Things are definitely looking up for the prospect of springtime in Montreal. You finally won't look weird biking down de Maisonneuve (or even unicycling!)
And yeah, we know we can't actually predict the weather.
In fact, no one can, so if it turns out that we're getting a snowstorm don't shoot the messenger!
Personally, my favourite part about spring is how fashionable people start to be. I mean, other than Autumn, there's no other season where you can seamlessly wear a peacoat and a pair of boots.
Spring also means the beginning of festival season and foodie season, people! With many events happening soon, stay tuned to MTL Blog for all the latest event news!
The custom airstream company in Montreal said Madonna's 1975 Airstream Sovereign 31' vehicle was designed in the likeness of a five-star hotel, featuring a custom leather couch and matching armchairs, retractable 50-inch TV monitors, a minibar and ice bin, heated floors, a tufted wall with custom light fixtures, a top-of-the-line sound system and custom under-carriage lights.
The RV even converts into a cigar lounge, built with a custom humidor and commercial air purifiers.
The price tag? A cool $200,000 USD. And Custom Airstream said other custom builds could cost up to $500,000 USD.
It's not the first time the Montreal-based camper customization company has worked with Madge. It also partnered with her on a "personal project" she hosted in the Hamptons in 2014.
"We're beyond excited to be part of Madonna's fun family moment," said a statement by David Schirmer, vice-president of sales and marketing at Custom Airstream.
"We woke up to a flood of phone calls, email and social media messages. People have been knocking down our door – it's been overwhelming in the best way possible. It's such an honour for our humble Québec company to add a little magic to Madonna's American Life!"
"Club Med Québec Charlevoix offers a one-of-a-kind vantage point at the heart of the Charlevoix region: built between the [Saint-Lawrence] river and the mountains, this Resort will offer you an incredible view of the mountain," according to the website, which calls this "the first Club Med mountain resort with waterfront views." There are other Club Med mountain resorts in the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps as well as China and Japan.
The Québec Charlevoix resort has 302 rooms and a private five-star luxury space with 25 suites. Select rooms "channel" the colours of Quebec, according to the website, "with winter white, twilight blue, and yellow sun decor." There are also three restaurants and, of course, one of them features ski chalet favourites, such as fondue and raclette.
Guest get unlimited meals and beverages, and daily entertainment, as well as unlimited ski-in/ski-out access, lift tickets, and group ski and snowboard lessons included in the all-inclusive package. For additional costs, guests can also try out Quebec activities like ice-skating, dog sledding, and sugar shack visits during the winter or biking, hiking and whale watching during warmer months.
On Tuesday, Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé tweeted that the COVID-19 situation in Quebec's Mauricie region was "worrying," particularly among unvaccinated and partially-vaccinated 18- to 30-year-olds, as cases in Mauricie–Centre-du-Québec jumped from 17 to 146 between July 22 and August 2.
"As elsewhere in the world, the recent increase in the number of cases is worrying," Legault tweeted.
"We will be announcing new measures in the coming days."
On August 4, the province reported a total of 184 new cases of COVID-19 in Quebec.
