    i also feel that way. however u have 2 be considerate of others. some people must get places urgently and it is not safe even when it is plowed. but it is safer when it is plowed. last winter, i lived on a really busy street. there was dirty snow piled up on my front yard. it was horrible. baruch Hashem i moved. i think the snow is beautiful and i hate it when people walk on it. just thank Hashem for the beautiful things He makes 4 us.

    Not the 1st of the Year

    4 the year 2010 this is not the biggest snow storm. If you remember the last week of Feb. 2010 was a really big storm. Everything was closed down. Don’t remember how many inches but it was really really really big. So let us not forget last Feb right b4 Purim a huge snow storm hit Bklyn that was the biggest so far there were other snow last Jan. however it wasn’t as big as Feb so I would say this is the 2nd biggest of the year being that we r @ the end of 2010.

    I was in montreal for afue years and they only get 2 feet of snow once or twice a year. The only reason why montreal doesn’t shut down is because they have more plows etc. So pipe down from the kalte shtut.

    take a ruler and measure 20 inches, would u walk to work in that? the city doesnt clean the sidewalks for us, we have to do it ourselves — only when the snow stops — that will be tomorrow, so till we can shovel, there’s no way we will walk to work!

    Safety First.

    One of the reasons most schools are closed during snow storms is because the roads are dangerous for driving and walking….. I feel that it’s irresponsible for the yeshivos to stay open during such a storm. I wonder if others share these thoughts?

    schools open.....

    the reason OT is open (& now I’m sure ULY too) is because the Rebbe told them never to close. So – even in much worse storms OT does not officially close. Apparently though if a kid can’t get there… they are not penalized & in worse storms no one comes other then 1 teacher “to keep school open” so 1) if u as a parent feel u need to protect ur child – do that but yes – kol hakavod that they listen to our Rebbe & keep school open. 2) that’s prob. y it says “are encouraged toattend”… Read more »

    #26 The weather in NYC and Montreal is very similar..its only a 7 hour difference by car , we are not in the arctic here people. Its 45 mins from the NY border. What number 4 is trying to say is that its funny how everything shuts down in the states when there is a big snowstorm ..she is basically calling you wusses…
    but why do you take it personally shes not talking about you RELAX..

    Montreal standard of living is superior to Crowne Heights in many ways…don’t diss.. deal with it =)

    I’m very sorry but this “policy” from Oholei Torah that they are “always open” is totally retarded! Who made up this Shtus? R’ Mochoel Teitelbaum? It’s dangerous to walk in the streets – and YOU are responsible if anything happens to the kids..!!

    hated Montreal winters

    Driving through the Adirondacks on our way from NY to Montreal during a snowstorm, the roads although slow-going, were clean and manageable; as soon as we crossed the border into Canada the roads became an impassible nightmare. I lived in Montreal for several winters and there is nothing even remotely nice about the never ending cold and the constant ice and all its dangers. NY snowstorms are few and far enough apart that they are fun at first and are usually gone soon enough!

    I love the 4 seasons here;
    White, white winters.
    Colourful gardens in springs.
    Wonderful Summers. Comfortable Temperatures, outdoor cafes- gorgeous summer nights.
    Awesome Autumns. Stunning foliage and colours, and then back to our white, white winters.

    Pretty all around. Just an awesome city. Love it.

    There is nothing more beautiful than a walk in Montreal after a fresh snow. Ah!!!!
