Sights and sounds from the Montreal storm
Across the city, people are doing their best to get from point A to B
We're digging out of the first major snowstorm of the year — a storm that has closed schools and roads and has generally ground things to a halt across the province.
By the time the last flake has settled, about 40 centimetres of snow will have fallen in the Montreal region.
Across the city, people are doing their best to get from point A to B. Here are a few sights and sounds from the storm.

There's going to be a lot of this going on today:

Of course, there are always those who manage to have a little fun in the snow, whether it's by finding different ways to get around ...

... practising their wrist shots (and goal celebrations)
... or just giving in and embracing it.
Bless this guy, making a snow angel in the middle of (what could be) the worst snow storm in two years. Just outside Berri-UQAM. <a href="https://t.co/4j5bUqKxF5">pic.twitter.com/4j5bUqKxF5</a>—@katemckenna8
