Up to 50 centimeters of snow were expected by Friday evening as a winter storm warning was issued for Friday for much of southern Quebec. A lot of schools and daycares closed (luckily not ours) and driving conditions were quite difficult but manageable for short trips.

It’s the biggest snowstorm this year but it’s not as brutal as the one we witnessed last year which was accompanied by very strong winds. In fact, this year’s winter is quite smooth when compared to last year, temperatures are higher and less snow falls but we’re still in early Feb so let’s not jinx it 😁.

Here are some pictures I captured yesterday. I was planning a time-lapse but got caught up with work. You can check out more pictures on [Livemtl] and [MontrealGazette].
