To anyone who needs to use their car in Montreal today, we wish you bonne chance.

After a night of freezing rain and a snowstorm, the city of Montreal was left with a layer of crystal clear ice, covering everything from sidewalks and cars, to windows.

The slippery conditions may make for a painful commute for those who have business on the go in the City of Saints, as we can see from this bumper car situation the last time Montreal had a snow storm. It often feels like a 'downhill battle' for Montrealers when faced with the harsh weather.

For those who see the glass half full, it sure makes for a beautiful Instagram photo, doesn't it?
