Default Incredible snow pictures from Quebec City

Parts of the southern Great Lakes region into parts of eastern Ontario...Quebec and northern New England have had record seasonal snowfalls this winter season. Caribou Maine broke their record with now just over 182 inches for the season...Quebec City Canada broke their record with over 200 inches of snow this season. Madison Wisconsin broke theirs with over 100 inches of snow this season....and a few cities in Michigan also broke seasonal records.

Anyway someone on a weather board I frequent posted this link from Quebec City with pictures taken March 8 and 9th after their last blizzard. Absolutely amazing shots!! You gotta see them to believe. People have actually riden their snowmobilies onto their rooftops! While that area of eastern Canada is prone for very heavy snow in winter...this winter has broke all records.

I hope you enjoy!

I've been in Quebec City in winter, but never saw anything close to that amount of snow there. That was more like a snow bomb, not just a blizzard. They must have been digging out from that for at least a week. The snow in eastern Canada is not as light as the Rocky Mountain west variety either. If you don't get that stuff out of the way, it gets icy and solid pretty fast. When they tell stories about the winter of 2008 in Quebec, they will point to their car license plate or say "Je Me Souviens" (I remember). (If you have seen a Quebec license plate, you will "get it". If you have never seen a Quebec license plate, you will not "get it").

I read a report saying that Stewartstown, NH received around 230 inches so far this season. The town is located near the Quebec border.
