If Roger Ebert says a film deserves an Oscar, he should know. That he did so for a small amateur YouTube video, shot with a Canon D7 SLR in video mode, is astonishing. Well worth watching. And if you’re from a Northern clime, you’ll surely be able to relate….very reminiscent of the many Montreal snowstorms I’ve lived through (but very few lately – global warming I guess).

The film was shot 10 days ago during the December 26th New York snowstorm. Thanks to Mr. Dario, our New York correspondent, for the heads-up.
