Blizzard in Montreal Today

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!  Yes, we got a blizzard here in Montreal today.  They were expecting 15 centimeters of snow and am not sure what the end result is yet.  

The videos I have selected for this post are:  Another Just for Laughs Gag (Quebec's version of Candid Camera)

Here is a fun, upbeat video "I Wanna be a Minstrel Man" from 1934!  Enjoy!
e
Last but not least for the videos in this post is a beautiful classic piano piece accompanied by soothing ocean wave sounds and lovely nature images.  Relax and enjoy!

I took a few photos today of Montreal's blizzard.  The last photo shows how sweet Romeo is unaffected by it all.  :)  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.




The next items are things that I found on Facebook, and I am providing the links to the pages just beneath the photos.




Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

    I wonder sometimes what would happen if cats had to brave the elements and go to work.
    Strongly suspect work would be abolished.

  5. Romeo looks quite sleepy.

    We got hit by it too. I took some shots... which I'll be saving for a later occasion.

  6. Well, at least the snow from late-March blizzards doesn't hang around too long. And it IS pretty! :) Romeo looks like he probably takes everything in stride. I love the rosebush quote.

  7. Certainly the winter of my discontent. I believe the Atlantic shoreline took the worst this time.

  12. Poor you! More snow via a blizzard! May warm weather soon show up. I am so enjoying the Laughs Gags that you have been sharing. They make me burst out laughing ~ which is a little embarrassing in our hotel lobby where I'm trying to listen to your clips discretely! What a cute kitty! Stay warm!

  18. Once again you have out done yourself. I especially like the video of the minstrel man. I wish they would once again make movies (musical ones) like that. The rose is very petty and the quote is so true. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  19. I love the gags video, that was so funny, the looks on the girlfriends faces! Thanks for visiting my blog, and I hope to check in on yours very often! I was once in Montreal, when I was a child, for Expo 67.

  20. You had a blizzard? MOUSES!

    We had spring yesterday mornin' and then a little snow in the late afternoon. Now it's snowin' again. Where did the spring go? *sighs* Did someone fling it somewhere?

    Purrs,
    Nissy

  21. Wow, that's snow! I do love how soothing everything looks when covered in snow, especially when you can stay indoors with a nice glowing fire. I enjoyed your post, and imagine you have to keep yourself chuckling when winter goes on and on.

  23. Thank you for visiting my blog. I'm a sensitive person too. It can be painful but I think the ability to feel deeply is ultimately a gift.

  24. Brrr... ici il fait tellement froid, ce vent glacial est toujours présent, nous en avons eu de la neige et ils nous annoncent une autre bordée au milieu de la semaine, j'espère qu'ils se trompent... Merci pour ces vidéos, musiques et photos! Bisous tout doux et bonne soirée!

Hai qualche consiglio da darmi?
    Per il momento, buona settimana.

  29. I so love all the videos and quotes you share here, Linda. (The Project Happiness cartoon is such good advice!) We were supposed to get snow yesterday but it was barely a dusting. So it looks as if Spring might truly be here finally... I hope so! Wishing you warmth until your snow melts.
