Another Blizzard warning

Well we're at it again, No photo's, nothing to see but white. I know a few people had questions about how the wind could be so different from that in Ontario. I know wind has no mass however think about this. The wind here hasn't seen a tree within at least 450 miles. This wind is travelling at that speed at ground level, it hasn't had to go around tree's or buildings, it simply races across the tundra for hundreds of miles. The reason we have a new high school is the roof and most of the south wall blew away in the wind, Last year the roof of a house near where we used to live blew off in a blizzard, It landed over a hundred yards away when it smashed into the side of the elemetry school.
After work yesterdayI found out I was right, the locals didn't really think that was much of a storm, in fact we're having a basketball tournament at the high school and during the blizzard over 1000 people went to watch it, Thats 2/3 of the total population.
Oh, well. I thought it was one heck of a wind.
Take care,
