Worst blizzard in years cuts off phones, internet for almost 4 days

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.

  1. Bonsoir Phil,
    j’ espere que vous avez reusis de retablir le web et le telephons.
    Tu sais, c’est drole. Ici il fait en ce moments aux alentours de 5°C et nous nous plaignon du froid. Franchement les -40, je ne vous les envie pas!

  2. When the wind
    Snatches
    Any warmth
    That I may have
    Tucked under my skin
    And runs with it
    Howling
    I feel a chill
    That he will return
    To night
    More vicious
    With his icy prodding hands

  3. as much as new yorkers complain about snow, it’s still rather amazing to be in the middle of such awesome powers of nature; i get why storm chasers do what they do.
