Horse-drawn carriages are everywhere in Quebec city, all year round, adding an old-country charm to the streets.

Shoveling roof tops must be dangerous, one of these workers took a pretty good spill while I was there shooting this shot.

I met Kristell in a parking lot looking for her car which had been towed the night before. Apparently the red light flashing signals that the snow plow is coming and you had better move your car ASAP.  This light was unfortunately around the corner and out-of- sight from where Kristell was staying while visiting friends. As a result, her car was towed to a neighboring city lot and ticketed $100. Kristell explained, “I’m from Montreal, and we don’t have these red lights in Montreal. I had no idea even where it was on the street. This really screws with my schedule.”

Ever seen a daycare take a trip to the tobogganing hill in the middle of a blizzard? Well, in Quebec city that’s completely normal!

Maple Cones! I had one and went back to the sugar man for a second! So good.

These were the sleds that you can rent for $2 a run to go down the ice slide.

People snowshoe all over Quebec city, not just for fun, but for a means of transportation. This is definitely one of the best ways to get around, as the snow is knee-deep otherwise.
