Well folks, after months of sub-zero temperatures, Canada is finally beginning to thaw.

Gone are those heavy winter jackets, knee-high boots and snow-covered scarves. Instead we’re seeing windbreakers, sneakers and bright, bold colours. It’s a sign that summer is well on its way. In fact, this is what the weather looked like in Toronto earlier:

And here’s what it looked like on the other side of the country, in Vancouver:

Now here’s what it looked like on the East Coast:

Wait…what?!

It appears not all of Canada is basking in sunshine and rainbows. In fact, Environment Canada actually issued blizzard warnings for parts of the East Coast right before the area saw as much as 59 centimeters of snow fall last night. The weather was severe enough to close roads and even cancel flights:

While it’s hard to believe these images were all taken in the same country, Maritimers are actually falling victim to a classic Canadian phenomenon: The it’s-almost-spring-winter-snow-storm. It’s a brutal weather system that plagues a random part of the country every year, which is why Canadians nationwide are sympathetic to their pain:

Luckily, things aren’t so bad thanks to the classic East Coast hospitality the area is known for:

Others are just trying to make the best of a bad situation:

And that’s great, because they’re going to need as much of that positive energy as possible. Everyone else is just straight-up pissed:

Parts of the Maritimes are expected to receive even more snow later this week.

Stay warm out there, East Coasters.
