That's in the same year as a polar vortex in Ontario:
And a record-matching blizzard on the East Coast.
The snow can hit Winnipeg in a flash...
...And pile so high that even the cars form snow angels:

Windrows keep you from backing out of your garage...
And shovelling your walkway is a real chore:
It's not the Rockies...
Yet rivers and lakes tend to form in the streets:
It never seems to end (this was on April 7):
And when it lifts, this is what it leaves behind:
But we have to hand it to Winnipeggers. They know how to make the best of a bad situation:
And how to find the beauty amid their misery:
So cheer up, Winnipeg. Sunnier days are on their way, and you've earned them better than the rest of us.
