a barrow load of snow

Snow has arrived in Barrow, one of the world’s most northern cities. Barrow has a polar night that lasts from November to January and this was the setting for the comic and film “30 Days of Night”. The comic, of course, is illustrated by the brilliant Ben Templesmith.

The other reason why Barrow is interesting is that it has a webcam that illustrates the effects of global warming by showing that the Arctic Ocean around Barrow is ice free for longer and longer each summer.
