February Lights

It seems a rare occurrence when the skies are clear and the lights are out but tonight it happened.  Unfortunately it seems the part of my tripod that screws into my camera is missing so I had to use my $6 tripod made for a point and shoot camera.  Lets just say it wasn't working very well.  I did manage to get a few photos from around my house and the best of the bunch is below.
Now to find the missing piece to my tripod or look to purchase a new one!

Blizzard 2014 - Another Photo

Better look at the parents house in the light of day.  Note the front door is now a snow door and the electrical meter reader is now under snow at the bottom of the electrical mast.

Here are a couple of photos from around the house this morning.  The wind got so bad at around 6:00 AM that it woke us up.  Stuff on the shelves was rattling and it sure sounded like we were going to have windows blown in.  Nothing happened and we are okay.

My snowmobile.  Looks like I have some digging to do.

usually doesn't drift in this section of road.

My Honda ATV!

Corner by our front door.

Look down our road, the satellite dishes and the hamlet truck.
The Hamlet truck is now a snow sculpture.

Blizzard 2014

First blizzard of the year.  Michele took the video below of the wind and snow tonight.  The blowing snow kept messing with the autofocus.  We will try to take a video in the daytime tomorrow since the blizzard is forecast to stick around until tomorrow night. 
Winds in Cape Dorset will be gusting to 110 km/hr overnight.  Winds in Iqaluit are sustained at 110km/hr which is just 9km/hr less than a category 1 hurricane. 
Another video of the blizzard looking out our dining room window.  Taken at around 21:30.
The house is shaking, crackling and vibrating!  Wow just wow.
