Default Re: Weather in Canada - January

Hey! Neyvan,

Just to have an idea about how New York and Toronto are not equipped to face big snowstorms - because they usually don't have any serious white stuff - have a look at this shot, where they have to attach plows to garbage trucks!!!

Now, this is the Montreal version...

We don't just push the snow, we have to pick it up, because there is too many. It takes days to empty all the streets and parking lots, and sometimes, there is another snowstorm the day after or while they are doing it, so they have to begin all over again...

One more thing: In winter 2008, we received 300 cm of snow, a record for more than 40 years... It would be cool for you to be here during another big storm!...

Have a look at this!
