Swear words likely echoed through the Montreal streets today as the city awoke to snow.
And not just your (typical?) April snow, the city is enduring thick, heavy, lasting snow.
According to Environment Canada’s special weather statement, Montreal could see up to 10 cm of powder which is expected to last through the night.
Today’s snowfall in Montreal is not exactly the definition of April 9 weather and the only place that’s warm and dry in the city is on Twitter.
Montrealers took to the popular social networking site to deal with the snow the best way our generation knows how: GIFs, jokes, memes, and sarcasm.
Besides, Montrealers have dealt with enough wintery weather this year, the best reaction at this point is laughter.
As you shovel those boots, coats, and gloves out of the closet, here are some of the funniest reactions to today’s ‘spring snowstorm’ in Montreal.

Alright HBO, we get it, you have a huge marketing budget for the new Game of Thrones season.
But the endless winter in Montreal is a bit much.

Trending in Montreal #snow I don’t need to read anything, just looking from my window is depressing enough.
