This winter is so damn warm that the capital of Canada — Canada for chrissakes — can't even pull off a winter-themed festival today. Winterlude time in Ottawa usually means crisp temperatures, icy conditions, and the Rideau Canal covered in happy skaters. Justin Tang / THE CANADIAN PRESS But just two days into the annual winter festival, "adverse weather conditions" have caused some cancellations. It's just too damn warm. Justin Tang / THE CANADIAN PRESS This is what the canal looks like now: a really big puddle. View this photo on Instagram Instagram: @amerry Ice sculptures are cowering in fear.

Winterlude @Winterlude Wow! 2069 snowmen, that’s incredible and a new world record is set during #Winterlude!
