If you’ve read the news over the last couple of weeks, you’ve probably heard about the record-breaking snowfall that hit Montreal and the province of Quebec on December 27th.
While it wasn’t a violent, windy snowstorm, the amount of snow – or as pessimists like to call it, white sh*t – that covered the city is quite spectacular. More than 45 cm in just a few hours! I lived through what I gracefully nicknamed “Snowpocalypse” to tell the tale, along with my beloved Instagram account.
Here’s a sneak peak of what the western side of the province, including Montreal, looked like:

After I’d had enough of the “Me vs the Snow” on the Montreal sidewalks, my friends and I headed to a remote Lanaudière town, just in time for the New Year, where we had rented a log cabin to celebrate in style (or in other words, where we could eat and drink whatever we wanted without having to worry about a thing).
And over there, too, was a fabulous display of winter wonderland. In all honesty, I hadn’t seen that much snow since my childhood, which is much longer ago that I care to admit.
And this is what Snowpocalypse looked like over Montreal and Lanaudière. Needless to mention I was as giddy as a 7 year-old on Christmas Eve during most of the storm – I was born during a snowstorm, and nothing gets my mood to skyrocket like a good snowfall during the holidays. And that one sure did the trick!
