When the first snow started falling over Montreal 2 weeks ago, we weren't prepared and it showed.
A few flakes dropped, and the city went into complete chaos. The buses stopped working, the metro stopped working, there was no salt on the streets, and nothing was cleared.
That's somewhat understandable.
But now it's the second snowfall of the season, and everyone knew there was going to be snow today, yet we're in the exact same situation as were 2 weeks ago.
In fact, it's much worse.
The buses aren't working, but this time it's because they're crashing all over the place. There's no salt anywhere (not even on Montreal's most slanted streets), and I have yet to see a single snow clearing truck on the roads.
To put it simply, I'm straight up terrified to go home tonight. And I'm not the only one.
I have no idea what to expect when I get out of here, and frankly, I'm not too keen on taking a bus after seeing this video that's going viral this morning.
And that's the real issue, people are afraid.
It's one thing to be angry about the snow, or inconvenienced by it. But in a city that's known to have the best snow clearing crew in the world, why do we have to be afraid of getting to and from work?
We seriously need to get our shit together.
