Winter in Canada is beautiful. It’s a frosty festival full of snowmen, snow angels, and sledding. All you need to do is open the door, run outside, and start playing. Oh, but we forgot one detail. The snow in Canada is very uh… friendly (it takes after the people).
So, don’t be surprised if you open the door to discover a huge pile of snow blocking your way out. And don’t be surprised if your car suddenly vanishes. The snow just felt like cuddling it a bit. But other than buried objects, blocked doorways, and frozen grass, Winter in Canada is delightful!
You woke up, looked out the window, and realized it was the perfect day to build a snowman. You even ran to the kitchen and quickly snatched the last carrot. And, now, all that’s left is for you to open the door and begin rolling snow around until you stack up the perfect body size.
But wait, who’s that at the door? It’s none other than Olaf, the friendly snowman from Frozen. Looks like you won’t be needing that carrot after all. Your snow pal has arrived right to your doorstep, so you might as well invite him in. (Just make sure the heat in the house isn’t too high).
When it gets TOO cold outside, even the snow wants a bit of warming up. That’s why it came knocking at your door. And we’re warning you. This isn’t a visitor you can turn down. It probably won’t be leaving your front door anytime soon.
And, sadly, neither are you. So, if you had any plans for the day, you might as well cancel them. Or you can try to slip out the window. But we have a feeling that your snowy guest is covering that part of your house too.
Sometimes, the snow outside your house has already climbed up so high that it completely blocks your view. But other times, you’re able to see it gradually pile up as the day goes by. And when that’s the case, the most fun thing to do is to measure it.
This family’s day began at 9 a.m. There was only a bit of snow at the door, but they preferred to keep it shut so it wouldn’t all tumble into their house. And, as the day went by, they realized that opening their door would lead to a catastrophic event. By noon, it had piled up so high that it completely blocked their view!
While this fortress is beautiful, it’s also a nightmare for whoever’s living inside. Unless they don’t mind some solitude and find their alone time incredibly peaceful. In that case, this is the best possible scenario for them!
Imagine having to go somewhere you really don’t want to, and instead of making up weird excuses, you can just blame it on the weather. “It’s snowing all over my house, so I literally can’t get out” sounds like a great response.
We all know that ice can preserve things for longer periods of time. Our food can be stored in the freezer for months and even years without going bad! But food isn’t the only thing that stays fresh in cold weather.
Looks like this frozen reptile has survived millions of years and has now come back from the dead to say hello. After its greetings it will probably want to eat you. So you might have to fetch something from the kitchen if you want to keep yourself alive.
We can only imagine the size of the monster truck that was needed to shovel this driveway. But the result is spectacular! It’s like a maze in a winter wonderland. It’s the perfect place to hide from someone you’re trying to avoid. Unless they peek over and find you underneath.
But, jokes aside, it’s a beautiful sight. Seeing how much snow piled up is spectacular! Time to put on your ice cleats and try to climb up the frosty wall. We bet that the shoes’ spikes will allow you to succesfully make your way to the top.
We tend to forget where we park our cars in places like large parking lots or between narrow, unfamiliar roads that all look the same. But losing your car in your own neighborhood? That’s an unlikely event. Unless your neighborhood has been covered in snow.
In that case, we’re talking about a whole new territory. This guy’s car is right under his nose, but he can’t seem to find it! I hope he’s not running late. Because “I lost my car somewhere near my house” seems to be an unlikely excuse.
Finally! So that’s what the other side of the fence looks like. I bet this dog was thrilled that he could finally take a glimpse at the neighbor’s backyard. Who would have thought he could ever get high enough to see what was waiting for him on the other side.
Now the question is, should he cross over to say hello? Or would that be too intrusive? Looks like he’s thinking hard about what to do. In our opinion, he should jump in and say hello! If we were his neighbors, we would be happy to have such a friendly buddy come over.
Winter is the ultimate season to snuggle up with your significant other. Even if it’s minus seven degrees outside, and it’s been snowing for the past month. Don’t let any snowstorm keep you from enjoying a good time out.
Maybe the roads are too dangerous to drive to a restaurant, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create that same space right outside your house! So, when the air is cold and the heart needs warming, just set up a candlelight dinner for you and your loved one. That will surely melt all your worries away.
We wonder how long it took these people to dig up their car. Come to think of it, was it even their car? It could have been their neighbor’s. When everything is covered in a heavy blanket of snow, nothing is familiar anymore.
You can easily find yourself disoriented to the point where you’re shoveling up your next door neighbor’s car instead of your own. I wonder what other treasures are buried deep in that hunk of snow. Basketballs? Scooters? Let the treasure hunt begin!
Ahhh…either this is a simple rookie mistake or just an honest one. Forgetting to close your sunroof in the winter is a huge no-no in Canada. Or anywhere else, for that matter. Rain, snow, branches flying in the wind: The options are endless when it comes to what can enter your car.
This poor guy forgot to close his sunroof and woke up to a pile of snow all over his car seats, wheel, and gear. Basically, every nook and cranny in his vehicle was filled with snow. We’re sure he learned his lesson.
Success! After hours and hours of shoveling, complaining, whining, laughing, crying, this person managed to dig their car out. But their work isn’t over yet. They still have this huge pile on top of their car.
I bet they left it there on purpose for the sake of the picture. They wanted to capture a Titanic-like moment and make it seem like their car just crashed into an iceberg. 10/10 for creativity! We bet they sang Our Heart Will Go On as they dug their vehicle out.
Can you imagine opening your door at night to a sight like this? This is straight out of a horror movie where zombie snowmen glide their way across the frosty ground. Be careful not to let them grab you with their woody hands or poke you with their carrot noses.
Any touch by the deadly snowmen will leave you frozen… forever. Cursed for life. Bound to remain a frigid, lifeless soul for eternity. Yikes! Whoever opened their door at that hour is one brave human being.
When snow falls from the sky, it really doesn’t care if you closed your sunroof or your windows. It doesn’t care if it blocks you from leaving your house, and it really doesn’t mind swallowing up your car completely. But! Stop signs are something else.
Stop signs are crucial. Without them, we risk jamming into each other. We need something to slow us down on the streets, and signs do just that. So, thank you, snow for being oh so considerate and allowing the stop sign to peek out from beneath your white blanket.
We can laugh all we want about snowmen knocking on our doors and frosty dinosaurs coming back from the dead, but this picture is simply too troubling to joke about. Pure claustrophobia. Even if you’re the most easy-going person, there’s no way having your house covered to this extent wouldn’t concern you.
What if something happens? What if you have to leave the house? What if Santa came down your chimney, but now he can’t get out? This picture is more than disturbing. It’s an absolute nightmare!
We all know the saying, “When one door closes, another door opens.” But that’s not the way things work in Canada. Another door doesn’t necessarily open after a snowstorm. All you discover when you open your door is another door, but one’s that made of snow.
Snow doors are quite the scene. Don’t expect them to open you up to a world of new opportunities. They’ll more likely to freeze you and force you to stay in the house. Oh well. Time to get creative! There’s plenty of indoor fun to be had.
Not everyone is willing to accept this bizarre and frosty situation. This dog is willing to dig his way out of this mess, no matter how long it takes him. But from time to time, he needs a rest. And I must say, his little, doggy igloo looks pretty comfortable.
This dog looks more puzzled than ever. He’s probably wondering what happened to the green and lively backyard. Sorry buddy. We’ve been struck by an avalanche. So, the bone you dug up before is probably long gone by now.
This man is around 6 feet tall. But only if he throws his hands high up in the air can he reach the height of the piled snow. That means that this snowstorm was one ferocious blizzard! Winter in Canada is incredibly relentless.
I wonder where he’s heading. It will probably take him days to get to shovel his way to the nearest supermarket. That is, if he’s even able to find it! It’s probably buried deep down and covered entirely in snow. There goes his chance to make dinner…
If I were to wake up in a house like this, I would probably call it a day. And a night. And a week. Heck, let’s call it a whole season and hibernate like bears. We’re not going to be seeing sunlight anytime soon. So, let’s stuff our faces with food and snooze until spring arrives.
Seriously, instead of getting depressed from all that darkness, let’s just cuddle up in our beds and shut our eyes. Wake me up when it’s springtime, and I’m able to leave the house!
Everyone knows that when life gives you lemons, you either make a sour face or lemonade. So, in Canada, when life gives you snow (A LOT of snow), you either surrender your house to its frozen fate or create a castle-like entrance straight out of a Disney movie.
These people decided to go with the latter. They worked hard to design an entrance that’s so magical, it puts Elsa and Anna’s frozen castle to shame!
In Canada, there’s no such thing as having your fridge too full for your soda. Because in Canada… the world is your fridge! No room for coke? No problemo! Just open your door and say hello to fridge number two.
Open your windows if you need to use fridge number three, number four, five etc. That extra cooling space really comes in handy when you’re stuck in the house for so long. Who said snowstorms can’t be put to good use? It’s not all disappearing cars and creepy snowmen!
This gorgeous cave looks like something you would see on your way to visit Santa. Oh, wait, that’s not a cave. That’s a fountain! When it’s winter in Canada, you go from strolling around your ordinary looking city to creeping your way around sharp icicles.
Having your surroundings change like that is super fun! Some areas remain the same regardless of the season. But, in Canada, winter swallows everything up and transforms your familiar surroundings into something else completely.
In Canada, not only do fountains freeze and homes disappear, but streets and lanes change their course completely. New lanes appear; old lanes vanish. That’s just the way things go. Sadly, the frosty walls dividing the street don’t allow you to greet the person driving next to you.
But that’s fine. Driving around in a snowstorm means that you have to be on your best behavior at all times! Eyes on the road, and no looking sideways at unnecessary distractions.
Yeah…there’s no way this dog is going outside. No more peeing out in the open. Only indoor peeing from now on. As for number two – that will also be done inside. There’s really no way around it. Dog owners in Canada have to accept their fate.
In the winter, your dog basically becomes a cat. So, you better prepare yourself with a doggy litter box. And while you’re at it, how about getting a doggy tree house with some nice scratching posts. It’s going to be a long winter before your dog feels like himself again.
Aha! Now we know how people manage to leave their houses. They dig their way out with the help of their loyal bathtub. Just stuff your tub with piles of snow and wait until it melts. It’s a long and strenuous process indeed, but worth it.
Stuffing your bathtub with all that snow means that there will be no shower time for anyone in the house for a couple of hours (or days?). But that’s all right. Being smelly is the price you have to pay for your freedom in Canada.
This little guy worked hard to create a solid foundation for his igloo. Or maybe he was just trying to clear out the path. Either way, good for him! His fortress looks super realistic. It even has snow bricks and all. Now he just needs to decide where the door will be.
He’s probably already thinking of the interior of his new house. Some frosty décor is definitely needed. He has enough snow all around him to create whatever furniture he desires.
Even if you closed your car’s sunroof and windows, your vehicle is still in danger. If you happen to dig it up from under a pile of snow, you better check under your hood. Your engine is probably covered in a white, frosty blanket.
In Canada, after a blizzard hits, chances are slim you’ll be able to start your car. So, start by digging out what you can and don’t give up! A little humor and a positive attitude is always the way out of situations like these.
On the one hand, snow is a fantastic insulator. Which means that these guys are probably warm and toasty in their cabin. But, on the other hand, I bet they’re minutes away from a full on panic attack. Hello claustrophobia, long time no see. Great to have you back.
Let’s hope they haven’t planned anything too serious for today. Because this isn’t a case of “the roads are too slippery I’m afraid to drive”; this is a case of “I literally can’t leave my front door.” This picture gives “snow days” a whole meaning.
What a sight. An ocean of snow, and our cars are slowly sinking. I know this is wrong, but it looks like so much fun to hop from one roof to the other. Or at least try. A snowy version of parkour, if you will.
We bet that after a few hours, these cars were nowhere to be seen. They had sunk deep into the frosty ocean, and their only hope was for the blazing sun to melt everything away. We have a feeling it took a while for the cars to reappear.
Snowstorms and vicious blizzards are unpredictable. And the situation can remain snowy for a long period of time. So, at a certain point in the winter, people get fed up. And this is when rat-like mazes begin to form in neighborhoods.
People shovel their way across the streets and create different paths that reach different destinations. It’s not like anyone really knows where they’ll end up, but they just keep digging and digging. Sometimes they bump into their neighbors by surprise!
Hmmm… I don’t remember adding another door to my house. While this design is interesting, I’m not sure how happy these people were to discover that nature decided to add another door to their house. Especially a door that doesn’t really open up.
It’s a challenging door. One that requires a lot of strength, discipline, and little to no whining. You just have to shovel your way out without thinking too much. Leave any laziness at the door! Scratch that. Not at the door. This door requires will power.
You know how sometimes the weather gets so hot you feel like you could fry an egg with the heat from the sun? Well, in Canada, it gets so cold that you can freeze an egg. That’s a saying you probably never heard before, right?
It’s definitely a unique way to prepare your fried egg. Sorry, not so much fried, but “freezed.” We’re not so sure about the taste though…. But at least we know it has a crunch to it! So, for those of you who like their eggs extra crispy, you’re in for a treat.
In Canada, the weather gets so cold that the paint from your car starts to come off. Just kidding. This might just be really, really, bad paint work. But maybe not. Maybe the moisture got underneath this car’s paint and caused it to slowly peel off.
But I mean… things could have been worse for this person, right? On this list, we’ve seen some horrendous pictures of cars packed with snow to the point where you can’t even enter them.
In Canada, washing the dishes isn’t a given. There are some days when you just have to shrug your shoulders and let the sink pile up. Just until the weather warms up a bit. I mean, you can try to scrub your plates on this icicle, but I doubt it will work.
Even if you turn your tap to its hottest temperature, there’s no guarantee the water won’t freeze up the second it pours out. You just got to get used to licking water, instead of drinking it. But be prepared to say goodbye to your tongue.
There’s a lot going on in this picture. For one, it looks like the “this is fine” gif with the dog sipping on coffee as its house burns down. Two, we’re not sure why this guy is happy, but it probably has to do with the fact that he finally found a place to defrost his beard.
And three, it reminds us of the meme of the little girl mischievously looking at the camera with the burning house behind her. An interesting picture indeed!
We believe that this person deserves the day off. There’s really no way they can do anything without their glasses. They can go home and fetch their contact lenses, but there’s a high chance that those are frozen as well.
There’s nothing much one can do but stare into their blurry surroundings until the weather warms up a bit. The person can also try pouring hot water on it, but the water may freeze up the second it comes out so…
We know it doesn’t always seem like mother nature is a caring and nurturing force. But here! Look at this picture. Nature is clearly trying to signal the person not to leave their house. It could be because of the paralyzing cold, or because there’s an avalanche speeding up somewhere close by.
Either way, we hope this person listened to mother nature and remained indoors. We feel like frozen door hinges are a good enough reason to stay inside.
We’ve seen everything on this list. Snowmen knocking on people’s doors, dinosaurs popping their heads in for a quick visit, and now this. Ice slowly creeping into your peephole. It looks like snow will do anything to get into your house.
This is just the beginning. Soon, this sneaky ice will block your whole view. You won’t be able to see who’s knocking. I guess you’ll just have to open the door and hope for the best. Although we doubt you’ll be getting visitors anytime soon.
This is a work of art. Really! This looks like something a dentist would create. An artistic, creative dentist who wants to combine both his love of art and teeth. It’s glossy, it’s flossy; it’s really everything a dentist would want in his clinic.
In all seriousness, this is super impressive. We wonder how long it lasted like that. The person who captured this photo was definitely in the right place at the right time. Winter in Canada is truly something!
Icy grass is a unique sight! It kind of looks like fingers, but somewhat like bananas too. It’s both creepy and intriguing. And we can only imagine the lound, crunchy sound it makes when it’s stepped on. If you’ve ever wanted to run across shattered glass, this is the closest you’ll get without hurting yourself.
The water in the background is perfect with the glistening, icy, banana-shaped grass. But while this picture is beautiful to look at, it also freaks us out. We hope this dog’s tongue is fine and not stuck for life on one of the popsicles.
