Ok, so when I said spring was just around the corner last week... I'm sorry. I didn't mean to lie. It was the groundhogs!
Clearly, we're still in the thick of it, winter-wise. The fact that we broke two snow records with this snowstorm just goes to show, Montreal is in the midst of a snowpocalypse.
So what are you to do with yourself?! Have no fear, I'm here with suggestions for cozy indoor fun as well as activities to make the most of all the fluffy white stuff we love so much.
