I want to throw out some Monty Python reference, but I'm afraid I was never enough of a fan to remember more than a few lines from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" badly translated into French. (As an aside, if your partner doesn't learn their lines and writes them on the back of their sheild, do not (and I repeat DO NOT) cut off their sheild arm first as it leads to prolonged and embarassing attempts at improve in a language that is not your first language and further more if you want to refer to someone as a chicken (like a coward) the proper translation is not to shout "Poulet, Poulet" although it may make your French teacher laugh.) The reference is something to do with "nobody expects the Spanish inquistion", but I"m not sure if that is right... anyone can feel free to correct me.
This is the rarely "seen" view from our rarely uncurtained window of the house directly behind us at about 5 pm. The blizzard warnings have been describing this one as a dangerous storm which is worrisome as they rarely use any creative adjectives or give advice about what you should or shouldn't do and the warning all but called for people to stay inside.
While the warning did not seem to apply so much to Baker Lake with winds of only 50 gusting to 70 km/h, with sufficienct snow to make this pretty poor visibility - we have been getting winds more like 70 gusting to close to 90 km/h - and its pretty much white out conditions.
