The Hunt for White October


PA080307.jpg

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.

October 8th, people. October 8th.

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

Why I love blizzard days.
