Quebecers woke up on April 22 to a winter wonderland. Mother Nature dropped up to 10 centimetres of snow over the Capitale-Nationale region and more in Chaudière-Appalaches. Fortunately, the Tourny fountain, on the left, still had its winter cover on.

To celebrate Earth Day, Mother Nature prepared a weather system worthy of a glorious winter day. After several weeks of relatively warm temperatures, residents of Quebec City ended April 21 in the midst of a windy snowfall and woke up the next day to a fluffy white blanket of snow.
