Calgarians dreaming of a white Christmas will get exactly that.
On Wednesday, the city was hit with a snowstorm that dumped more than 30 cm of snow across different communities.
Across the northwest of the city, shovels and snowblowers were out in full force, neighbours were clearing bus stops, and some residents even got a little creative.
Transit riders weren’t the only ones having trouble moving around the city. A number of cars were stuck and people tried to push them out of snow banks.
But some cars proved too difficult to move and were just left out in the cold.
Regardless of the heavy snow fall, some still had to work. But first, they had to clear the snow.
While some had to work, others stayed home and got creative with the snow. The person who built this snowman said that he “gained the COVID 20”
While the snow may have made travel difficult, many residents shared the same sentiment. “It’s a good thing we can’t go anywhere anyway,” said one resident who’s car was stuck outside his house.
And those who wanted to go out, found walking very difficult.
Maybe staying home is the best idea today!
