North of 60: Man in Black
This was Saturday 9-Jun-2012 and it's me in the snow in Iqaluit, Nunavut, Canada. I'm the man in black. Black boots, black jeans, black jacket, black ThinkTank Streetwalker HardDrive. What's missing? The black underwear and the black socks.
- I did not take this snapshot. This was done by “the boss” with her Canon G5 in JPEG mode.
- When we left, there was a little bit of rain then the temperature started to drop like a stone. The rain started to become freezing rain, then snow. An hour later, the snow became a blizzard, snow and winds of 60+km/hr or 40+miles/hr.
- Notice the ThinkTank Streetwalker and the monster zippers at the bottom right. By keeping the zippers at the bottom, neither rain nor snow got in and I didn't use the “official” rain cover.
