It's icy enough to skate on the roads in Montreal today (VIDEOS)

Mother Nature isn’t about to let the last Friday of the year slip away. Or is she?

With a freezing rain warning in effect, Montreal is trying not to turn into MontreFALL.

Environment Canada expects today’s freezing rain to switch to rainfall by this evening, but that didn’t stop Montrealers from having some fun with this morning’s ice.

In the South Shore, a father and son opted to strap on the skates and hit the ice (on the road) and a hockey player worked on some road-side skills because, why not?

Thin layers of ice atop cars also gave Montrealers a chance to show off their holiday muscles by smashing through ice windows.

During freezing rain warnings, Environment Canada urges citizens to continually monitor weather updates and to remain diligent while travelling, even if that means via skates on the road.
