Ever Wonder What An Arctic Storm Looked Like?

A few days back I mentioned that the Catlin Arctic Suvey’s Ice Base Team was beset with a major arctic storm over the weekend. The storm brought winds in excess of 60 mph and temperatures plunged to -45ºC, with wind chills reaching -75º!

Now, the team has shared some video of the storm that really puts into perspective what it is like to be out in the arctic when the weather turns bad. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to get the embedded video to work properly for some reason, so unlike most videos that I just show here on the blog, I’ll have to give you a link instead. Click here to check out the video of the Ice Base Team enduring the arctic storm. Then, be glad you’re some place warm. Well, at least warmer!
