Here comes the rain… err, snow again

My deck and backyard were as close to snow-free as I had ever seen them in February, and this just an hour ago.

Now, it’s snowing flakes the size of raisins, with about 2 inches accumulated so far, and no sign of slowing or stopping for quite a while.

Welcome to Montreal… :p

Update: And now, the same storm means my (flight attendant) wife is stranded in Newark. Bummer…

Montreal’s Snow Village

Eye of a Culturalista

Don’t have plans for the weekend? Why not visit the Snow Village at Parc Jean-Drapeau? Want a unique winter experience? You can book a room at the village’s ice hotel or even spend the night in an igloo. If sleeping in frigid conditions is not your cup of tea, then stop by the Amarula Ice Bar during Happy Hour for a cocktail and enjoy the music by Guest DJs. Or you can make a reservation at the Pommery Ice Restaurant or enjoy the heated spas. There is even an Ice Chapel for all those who dream of a White Wedding! There are also tons of activities for the whole family like the snow sculpture exhibit, the snow labyrinth and the snow slide. The Snow Village will be open to the public until March 31st.
