Vancouver Got A Montreal-Style Snowstorm And They Can't Handle It

The reactions are hilarious.
Vancouver Got A Montreal-Style Snowstorm And They Can't Handle It

As Montreal waits for some one of the biggest storms of the year to hit, other parts of the country are already experiencing some pretty intense snowfall. In Ontario, many flights were cancelled and teachers and students took the day off due to bad weather.

Vancouver, too, has been experiencing some snow. They've gotten between ten and fifteen centimeters of snow in the last two days, and are predicted to get another five to ten centimeters tomorrow.

As Montreal braces for a snowstorm predicted at aroud 40 cm, this seems pretty tame. But Vancouver is having a hard time dealing with the snow. And, though we know we shouldn't laugh, we're laughing anyways.

TL;DR Vancouver is having a hard time dealing with the snowstorms and the reactions are hilarious.

Reactions like these are what Montrealers live for. The only thing we like more than complaining abour our weather is making fun of other people for complaining about their weather.


Everyone else: No, this is an inch of snow.

And it's not just Montrealers who are laughing at BC's response to the storm.

Am I allowed to laugh at the response to "snow" here in Vancouver since I'm from Alberta or...? #VancouverSnow#BCStorm#Snowmaggedon2019

Vancouver snow days are reparations for all those times in Alberta when our teachers forced us outside for recess in -25C

And, though we often get angry at the STM during snowstorms for bad service, check out this bus unable to make it up a hill.

You know that it’s officially a snow storm when the B-Line can’t get up 10th Ave!

@NEWS1130Traffic Busses stopped on Granville st bridge as they struggled to make it past 7th Avenue.

February 11, 2019

That "sorry" on the bus is the most Canadian thing ever.

It seems that many have forgotten how to drive in this weather.

The patio @carlosobryans at 7th & Burrard took a hit in the #vancouversnow - Snow will continue in the Lower Mainland over the next couple of hours tapering by midnight. Expect slippery conditions.

Is a snowstorm really a snowstorm if it produces snowmen this small? I think not.

Legitimately proud of his work. #Vancouversnow . Cupcake hat to show size. 🧐😂

And this person is just really concerned for their crocuses... #prayforcrocuses2019.

i think my crocuses are doomed

The fact that a Canadian city had flowers that began to bloom in the first place is mindblowing to a Montrealer in February.

Every Vancouverite today is like

I don't trust this white rain that floats. Staying in.#vancouversnow

It's nice to know that, no matter what the province or the weather, dads everywhere are the same

BREAKING: More snow in Vancouver, and father still wearing shorts.

February 12, 2019

Other Vancouverites are having similar problems with finding weather-appropriate gear:

About to do a very Vancouver thing and brave the snow in Hunter boots

February 12, 2019

This user hit the nail right on the head.

It's -2c, there is 20cm of snow, and all the schools are out. The rest of Canada must be laughing at us fail Canadians who have panic attacks the moment we see the white stuff falling from the sky.#vancouversnow#vancouverbc#snowday#Snowmageddon

February 12, 2019

So, tosummarise:

Sorry, Vancouver is out of order. Try again later #BCStorm#snowday#vancouversnow#SnowMageddon2019
