What a rough weekend!
Inuvik was hit by a very strong blizzard. Temperatures dipped to -40 celcius and the winds were gusting at 70 kilometres an hour.
The blizzard also knocked out the internet, cell-phone service, bank machines, Interac card service and any calls other than local calls for three-and-a-half days.
It has been called the most serious blizzard in years. Quite amazing to see the power of nature.
