Watch Montrealers Skate Through Their Neighborhood's Streets After The Ice Storm

Over the last few days following Sunday's intense ice storm, you've no doubt heard people say, or said yourself, something along the lines of "the city's streets are a skating rink!" Actually, you've probably heard a similiar comment so many times you're sick of the comparison, but it was true, as proven in the video below.

One family in DDO found the entire street surrounding their house covered in a thick layer of ice, and decided to put the ice rink comparison to the test. Donning some skates, the Stergiotis family hit the streets and skated along, filming the skate sesh. Check it out below.

Kudos to CJAD for originally posting the video, who have also created a playlist of some other post-ice storm experiences which you can watch here.
