UPS was supposed to deliver a package today. I bet the truck never left Lachine.

At least its shoveled.

My street is a small one so basically the entire thing is snow. The street level is about the height of my car's hood the whole block. No one can come in. I saw a neighbor with an SUV 4WD and he could've make it out of his driveway. Forget it. I think they'll pass by in a week for us because we're a small street.

I've worked at UPS. Let me be honest with you, when it's sunny they put residentials back on the belt if they have a lot of work. On days like this, the driver would have to be a really nice guy to take your package or air delivery was delayed. There's really no other way.

Then again, I worked on St-Laurent section which was very heavy.

Try living in Montréal Nord. I bet they dump everyone else's snow here when we're not looking. Snow removal? Hah.

My brother passed by St Michel this morning, said he saw a few trucks. Maybe they were delivering other people's snow

Oh, I wasn't expecting UPS to deliver my package to be honest. The streets are terrible.

If we're lucky, this snow will be removed before Jan 1st.

My girlfriend spent 2 hours at sauvé metro trying to get over here (we both work close to my house) and she said every time a bus would pass by, it would die and get stuck. Eventually every lane had a bus stuck in it jamming all traffic


She then decides to do it the other way, makes it to St-Michel metro to take the 67 north and she makes it 20 minutes until they get stuck behind some cars and the drivers tells them they all have to get out.

She's now walking from god knows where on st-michel to my place. At least there's too much snow for muggings.

They usually clean up my street 4-5 days after a storm. I'm optimistic. At worst I'll just have to buy a pair of racquets.

BEST MOVE EVER!
How much notice do you need to be able to get a car? Can you get one at any time?

You can get one at any time. You make the reservation online so you can basically book one car and be driving it a few minutes later.

So far, I never had any trouble to find a car available in my area (Plateau Mont-Royal), except for December 24th and 25th. I suppose it must be more difficult in areas where Communauto is less present.

I just got back from shoveling, and it's official, this is one of the biggest snowstorms I remember.

Well my mom just shoveled out a nice parking spot for me. She wanted a pepsi but I told her she can do without the sugar.

Funny, I used today as an opportunity to get shopping and errands done. Few cars on the road, no trouble finding parking, no lineups in shops. Great, efficient day.

This morning I took highway 30 for work and I literally saw more cars and trucks stuck in ditches and in snow banks than on the actual road. There was a ridiculous amount of stuck cars, and on some areas of the 30, visibility was very close to zero. Very scary. Oddly enough, I drove from 8 am to 3pm today and didn't get caught in any traffic.
