While we are all Canadian, this is a mighty large country. So every province really does experience winter in its own unique way.
We also all react to the snow in our own ways. Being Canadian unites us in our appreciation for great white winters but to each province their own coping mechanism.
Here are some of the most hilarious reactions to Canada's nation-wide snowstorms over the past couple weeks.
TL;DR While we are all Canadian, every province deals with a snowstorm differently. And those differences make us beautiful... and hilarious. Here are the best reactions to Canada's nationwide snowstorm from each province.
Let's start on the West Coast, where they are experiencing their first real snowfall of the year.
Vancouver: IS THIS THE POLAR VORTEX?— kulpreet singh (@kulpreetsingh) February 11, 2019
Everyone else: No, this is an inch of snow. pic.twitter.com/aje1KsVEog
We really do give Vancouver and other cities in B.C a hard time for their struggle with the snow.
But it's just all we have!!! You guys have great weather all year round, the least we can do is rag on you. Plus, when so many people lose it over an inch of snow... the rest of Canada kind of has a duty to call that out...
Toronto...— Heather Roxby (@HRoxby) February 13, 2019
What. Is. A. Snow. Day⁉️
- Calgary 🤔
Just seen someone get clapped with a fuckin snow brush right outside Tim Horton’s.... Calgary really that place— zachyy (@zacharyhanf) February 13, 2019
The Rockies do a really good job of protecting B.C. from insane snowfall, but the same cannot be said for their dear neighbour, Alberta.
And Calgary has always marched to the beat of its own drum... so maybe some people aren't phased... while others are lashing out with snow brushes.
I’m just confused why -37 in Sask isn’t considered a snow day😩— Emma Waldenberger (@EmmmaWalden) February 12, 2019
The amount of snow days Ontario universities have gotten so far this winter is ridiculous, come to sask and you’ll know what real winters are 😤— Navriti (@_navritisharmaa) February 12, 2019
Saskatchewan just seems really sad to be left out of this "Snow Day" phenomenon.
Is that just a day that snows? Okay, so a normal day in the prairies, then.
What’s snow day? Winnipeg has school EVERY day pic.twitter.com/MTFsUmT0uC— Pinkham School (@PinkhamSchool) February 13, 2019
maaan if #winnipeg got snow days for the weather of these other cities, it'd be 4 day weekends all the time— Alex Sav (@asav_r0cky) February 13, 2019
Where Saskatchewan is sad to be missing out, Manitoba is more pissed that Snow Days are even going on in other provinces.
They don't get snow days in Winnipeg when it's colder than the Arctic, therefore none of us should have this privilege. Period.
Toronto's general vibe about the whole thing is kinda like... can this be over now?
They know they don't have it the worst, but they still want nothing to do with winter if at all possible.
Overheard in Montreal, where we've had 35 cm of snow overnight and it's still falling:— Peggy Curran (@peggylcurran) February 13, 2019
"Once you get out of the snowbank, it's okay. It's getting out of the snowbank..." pic.twitter.com/0EIBrQ5XLx
Montreal is kind of the opposite of Toronto. Not only do people try to out-winter each other at every turn, I think the vibe is less "can this be over" and more "look how insane and special our city is."
With people jumping into snowbanks in their bathing suits or snowboarding through downtown, clearly, Montreal is just trying to show off how good they are at winter. We get it. You're all a bunch of bonhommes.
Yup ,we’re getting the snow in Bathurst , New Brunswick’s North Shore b’y— linda ferguson (@fergusonlinda13) February 13, 2019
You know what’s really out of the ordinary. A snow storm in New Brunswick. Man this is weird— Joel Seale (@IamJSeale) February 13, 2019
New Brunswick gets the award for being absolutely the most nonchalant about the entire thing.
Moncton and Fredericton are shut down, schools are closed, and the reactions are... "we're getting the snow b'y." God bless them.
Rain is the new snow removal in #Halifax 🤷🏽♀️— Cathy (@helen2happy) January 30, 2019
We just got snow without rain this week , first real snow here in Halifax NS Canada— Virginia White (@virginiamwhite) February 3, 2019
As is the norm in Halifax, rain is rarely far away. Nova Scotia is great at fitting in as many seasons as possible in one day!
Sometimes it can mean a lot less shovelling.... other times it means the city turns into a downhill ice rink that threatens to send you straight into the harbour.
Prince Edward Island
I know 2 teachers on PEI doing a Snow Dance tonight! pic.twitter.com/lY7ACpewYZ— Paul (@notwonsince1967) February 12, 2019
Honestly, does anyone from off the Island really understand PEI? The only part of that video I understood was "storm chips."
Every Canadian understands storm chips.
Newfoundland & Labrador
Ontario shuts down with 30 cm of snow. Here in Newfoundland we consider that a small amount and we go to work, school and everything is open. What a bunch of wimps— Beverly Power (@power_beverly) February 13, 2019
Newfoundland gets so bad! I was there years ago in St.Johns and the plows were dumping snow in the harbor, since there wasn't any other place to put it!— Hayden (@Gaming_Hayden) February 13, 2019
Further north than PEI is Newfoundland... did you know they have over 80 terms for different kinds of snow and ice?
With all their icebergs and coastal storms, it's no surprise that they are used to this crazy weather. Montreal should take note and start tossing their extra snow into the St. Lawrence!
Of course, I didn't bring the Territories into this because... if I did it would put us all to shame.
