I woke up at 02:00 yesterday to the fury of the arctic wind. It had my bed shaking, my house swaying, and the lights across town flickering. Without even looking out the window, I knew we were about to experience Iqaluit's first blizzard of the season. For the next fifteen hours, we were without power and partially housebound due to the 100 km/h winds. That being said, we were also off work and with camera (weatherproof lens included!). So, here is my view of yesterday's premature snowstorm. With these photos, I welcome winter (ie. Iqaluit weather) into my life for the next eight months.

In Iqaluit, we celebrate White Christmases, Thanksgivings, Easters, and even Fourth of Julys.
