Last week, winter storm Ivar battered Scandinavia.  Winds were particularly high in the Norwegian town of Ålesund - with interesting consequences for pedestrians.

Aah . . . fresh air!

Ha. That doesn't look all that different from normal day in the White mountains. The Mount Washington Weather Observatory has a Century Club. To get admitted, you have to walk around the observatory deck in 100mph sustained winds without touching anything for balance. They have a video at (click Century Club).

Try that with ice. "The Hawk" comes down the length of Lake Michigan and hits Michigan Avenue with a vengance. Used to be tons of videos of folks sliding backwards - have not bothered to look for them because I know your readers know how to use Google.

stay safe.

Looks like a normal day on the flight deck :-)

Reminds me of Adak, too. We sometimes had to link arms just to cross the parking lot.
