November is officially here and mother nature is wasting no time getting winter started in Alberta. Overnight, Edmontonians have been the lucky recipients of a big dump of snow and anyone who's been brave enough to hop in their cars this morning is likely regretting their decision. According to the online uproar, Edmonton traffic is a total nightmare today. So much so that the hashtag #yegtraffic is trending on Twitter. Edmonton drivers are sharing their road-related turmoil online and it is both funny and tragic.
According to The Weather Network, today’s forecast shows flurries in the morning and a “long period of snowfall” which threatens about 20 centimetres of snow. The forecast is ringing true as distraught Edmonton drivers try to get to where they need to be in the midst of traffic mayhem. Some locals are expressing complete rage on Twitter, others are using humour to help them get through these trying times.
If you're interested in both laughing and crying along with your fellow Canadians about a situation that is all too relatable, you're in luck. We've compiled some of today's best tweets about the outrageous traffic in Edmonton and we think they might cheer you up - in relatability, at the very least.
