Blizzard Wednesdays

Before I start, I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who left comments with their support on our last post. It is humbling to know that we have people who know, and even those who don't know us, who appreciate our blog and like it just how it is. We have no intention of changing how we write and who we are, and it's nice to know that we are still loved for it. :) And that's all I'll say about the whole debacle!

Moving on, today is yet another blizzard day here in Baker Lake. Last Wednesday was a blizzard as well, so it's becoming a tradition! It is confusing because you hear the wind, see the snow blowing, but the sun is shining and the sky is light...it almost doesn't feel right being home (not that I'm complaining, because I wouldn't want to drive in a blizzard). The airport is closed today as well, as no flights are coming or going, so Jeff gets to be home too - always a nice treat for us!
I don't know how to slow the shutter speed on my camera to show you, but there is more blowing snow than it looks like in the picture. Sometimes I just sit by the window and watch Mother Nature do her thing - there's a beauty to watching snow swirl around looking so innocent one moment and realizing that it can be completely blinding if you were out in it. At times it looks almost surreal and you feel like you're in a movie about the end of the world because it's so devoid of movement aside from wind and snow.

We heard that the weather is pretty chilly across the country, so keep warm! Maybe by us sharing that we're in -55 weather will make you feel a bit better. :)

  1. It's not chilly down here. It was a balmy -28C when I went out this morning. Now we're up to a virtually tropical -16C.
