Parts of Canada have seen so much ice building up on the roads that residents have been putting on their skates. A storm that hit parts of Ontario over Christmas saw freezing rain that has resulted in up to 15 milimetres of ice accumulating in some areas. Rendering driving dangerous and walked nigh on impossible, some local residents have come up with an alternative way of getting around. Laura Spink posted a video from Peterborough on Monday showing an adept skater moving around with ease over the icy road. Many others also used the opportunity to show off their skating skills with Michael Daoust & Nicolas Daoust posting a video of a skater pulling shapes in the middle of a residential street in Quebec.
