A cool day in the Northern Hemisphere

January 17, 2012

Today it is quite cool outside, for me that is anything below zero Celsius, for my friends on the Canadian prairies it is more like -40 Celsius.   So what do you do when it is this chilly?  We like  to spend time indoors, at home or at work, or like  myself today, shopping the sales at the mall.

Yesterday I was web surfing and found a website that is all about the cold that I found quite fascinating; the Extreme Ice Survey.  It has information about changes in glaciers, including time-lapse video of many glaciers  in Alaska and Greenland.  They make my trip outdoors feel balmy in comparison.  They are well worth the time to watch, and you can learn interesting information about the action of glaciers you may not have known before.
