According to local news, Feb. 16, 2016 entered into the City of Ottawa records books with a record snowfall of over 50 cm, surpassing the previous 1947 record by a hefty 10 cm. It also rivals other historical records recorded before using the standardized airport location as reference.
What better way to enjoy such weather that to test my old dashcam (let alone my car and snow tires). Turns out most of the videotaping ended up being bumper to bumper traffic.
The video nonetheless serves as an entertaining video testimonial of that special day in Ottawa’s weather history.
