    IF YOU ARE COMING FROM ANOTHER PART OF THE WORLD AND ARE PLANNING TO VISIT QUEBEC IN THE WINTER..BRING A REALLY WARM HAT. AS I DISCOVERED THE FIRST YEAR I CAME TO QUEBEC..YOU REALLY NEED A HAT. ESP WHEN OUT IN THE COLD..TEMPERATURES CAN GET UP TO -40 WITH THAT WIND CHILL. YOUR EARS BECOME NUMB TOO IF YOU ON'T WEAR ONE!

    Sudden Weather Changes

    The Snowstorm Begins. . .

    This "warning" goes for so many places. . .but it never hurts to be reminded. The day we arrived in Quebec City was beautiful, sunny and relatively mild (8-10 degrees). The second morning, we awoke to one of the worst snowstorms they would see all winter.

    It was actually too windy to walk. . .and we gave it our all. Although we had wanted to explore more of the city, we caught a slow-moving cab to the Musee du Quebec and spent the afternoon indoors.

    Lesson learned ~ come prepared for bad weather. . .and have a back-up plan for things to see and do.

    Frostbite - it can get COLD in...

    Frostbite - it can get COLD in Canada. I frostbit the tip of my nose and watched it slough off as dead tissue a few days later. Nothing serious but looks ugly for a while. Petroleum jelly as suggested (after of course). This all happened on my first run in a matter of seconds - BE PREPARED! It can get very windy and nasty at the summit. Head down to sheltered territory ASAP.

    Falling icicles and snow

    Icicles

    In winter be wary of falling icicles and snow. Watch your head and don't walk under too many roof ledges.
