Winter has not exactly been kind to Ontario this year. Ottawa is definitely no exception to the crazy weather Ontario has been experiencing this winter. Ottawa's roads are completely frozen solid, which means skating is pretty much the safest mode of transportation there right now. Some locals have been ice skating down the roads instead of walking or driving and honestly, after seeing photos of the conditions, we might do the same.

However, it's not only the Canadian ice skating on the roads that catches our eye but also how intensely icy the roads look. Seriously, the roads couldn't be any icier because they look like a full on ice skating river already. Is this a normal Ottawa road or the Rideau Canal Skateway?

Many other Ottawans have been complaining about the icy roads and taking to Twitter to document just how bad it is in the city right now. Check out even more intense photos of the icy roads in Ottawa and what locals had to say below! 

Ottawa police have even been warning locals after several car crashes took place across the city due to the icy road conditions, according to CBC News

It looks like it's safer to get out your skating boots than to get into a car and drive out on the roads in Ottawa. The roads in the city have transformed into another Rideau Canal.
