This is what Montreal looks like totally covered in snow
Like a few other major Canadian cities, Montreal was hit with its first major snowstorm of the year earlier this week.
The snow quickly blanketed the city, as well as other parts of Quebec, and The Weather Network reported that a widespread 10 to 20 cm piled up throughout the province, including in the city of Montreal.
And as it often does, the snow caused traffic increases, school shut-downs and fairly dangerous driving conditions.
As of Wednesday morning, the city had begun its full snow removal process, which is its earliest snow removal operation in history.

And although receiving so much snow this early may frustrate some, it also left the city looking white and beautiful.
Many residents took to social media to post photos of this year's first major snowfall.
Some of the photos show roads and sidewalks inconveniently covered in piles of snow.
While others show a quiet, serene-looking city straight out of a Christmas movie.
And despite the fact that Montreal has already broken their November snowfall record, they're about to get more.

"The next quick shot of snow will arrive on Thursday as a clipper tracks across the province early Thursday morning and through the afternoon," according to The Weather Network.
"Accumulations will remain light with a widespread 2-5 cm expected for most across the Eastern Townships and cities along the St. Lawrence including Montreal and Quebec."
