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.
