Day 117 of a 365-Day Portrait of Canada: Winter Roads in Ottawa

Winter Road on the Way into Hull, Quebec

Plowing highway 5; so far this we’ve been in five major snow blizzards. We purchased snow tires which has saved us many times over.

The weather in Canada shapes us. Take a look at this mother with her child lending into the wind while crossing a icy overpass.

With the transit strike in its 50th day, the citizens of Ottawa are very upset with the city and the union for not being able to reach an agreement. The traffic was three times as busy as it was the last time we were in Ottawa.

    Very nice indeed. I’ve put your blog on a “permanent” open to track your moves!

    Don’t shoot the president!

    Sadly all these winter pictures are scaring the hell out of me. How can I ever leave Trinidad? How could I ever return to that?
    Having said that the pictures continue to be amazing. I feel cold just looking at them!

      At least you are returning to the winter cold, instead of still dealing with it like we are. Would love a break…got a spare room?

    Hi Tim,
    Would like to submit cold commuters to a researcher for a textbook.
    If you’re interested, please get in touch. No price yet.
