Montreal Ice Storm Generates Mind-Blowing Photos

Nature promised a winter storm, and in Montreal, it delivered with an icy fury this past weekend.

In Southwestern Quebec a low pressure system coming north from the United States expected to bring freezing rain on Saturday and possibly Sunday.

Well, it did come Sunday. And the "freezing cold" weather stayed, according to CBC News.

A series of social media posts that came amid the cool weather conditions made one of Canada's most beautiful cities looked like it was encased in ice

The storm made it difficult even to walk or drive in some parts.

But there's no doubt it also generated some spectacular imagery, as Canadian winters often do.

Here are some mind-blowing photos we found of Montreal following its weekend ice storm:
