Part 2 of my 2-part photo essay about the last big storm of winter 2016/2017 in Montréal.Read More
In a blizzard in Montréal, it's usually a good idea to stay indoors: take the Métro, walk the Underground City, stay at the office, stay home, whatever.
Being outdoors can be downright hazardous to your health: the snow-covered streets mean cars can't stop in time, the sidewalks are slippery, or you might even get run over by one of these things - like I almost did.
PS: "Tasse toé" is the phonetic joual (idiomatic Montréal street French) for "tasse toi" (typical Québecois French) which loosely translates to "move over" or more likely "get the hell out of the way!"
On Tuesday, March 14, Montréal got slammed with 40cm of snow in about 18 hours. This was just at the beginning of the storm before things got really interesting.
