Winter in Montreal

Despite the freezing cold and icy roads Montreal looks very pretty with its snow covered streets, trees and houses.  There seems to be something magic when everything is white outside and dark streets become light at night,  casting shadows from the street lamps and holiday lights.  Not only the city, but also the suburbs, are  pretty at this time of the year.   Here are some examples…

    1. Thank you. Yes, the snow looks lovely but after a while it gets too much, especially when it is mixed with ice and the temperatures are -20C. The winter will last another 2 months and then we will look forward to spring and summer.

  1. Oooh, liebe Lara, ist das herrlich!!! Soviel schönen Schnee hätte ich auch gerne! Hier ist es leider nur grau und naß!
    Und wunderschöne Fotos hast du gemacht, die Laterne im Schnee ist so stimmungsvoll! Ich mag die Erker an den Häusern so gern! Tina genießt den herrlichen Schnee, ein süßes Bild!
    Danke für die zauberhaften Bilder aus deiner Heimat, ich habe sie genossen, liebe Grüße

    1. Vielen Dank Monika. Es freut mich, dass Dir die Bilder gefallen. Ist wahr, dass der Schnee so schön aussieht auf den Bildern. So weihnachtlich. Leider ist es hier immer so kalt, dass man sich nicht viel draussen aufhalten kann und man vielleicht noch ausrutscht auf den Eisplatten. Ja, und nach ein paar Monaten Winter sehnt man sich dann schon nach dem Grünen. liebe Grüsse, Lara

      1. Ja, das kann ich mir dann allerdings auch vorstellen, daß man sich nach Monaten mit Winter dann doch nach dem Frühling sehnt.
        Ich wünsche dir und Tina ein schönes Wochenende, liebe Grüße

    1. Thank you so much. Montreal is really a lovely city and in winter, with the snow, it does look magic and when it is not too cold it is fun to go for walks outside. Luckily we also have a lot of indoor shopping malls.

  2. I was in Montreal a couple weeks ago and the snow had the same enchanting quality as in these pictures; it’s a joy to behold. The snow here in New York doesn’t feel as magical, I guess because they’re such different places overall. Lovely pics!

    1. Thank you so much. I am glad you like the pics, but now….in April…..I wish that the weather would get warmer. It is true though that Montreal looks magical in winter, especially after a heavy snowfall when everything is white outside.
