Going to Work at 30 below in the Artic Winter

A Catskinner runs through blowing snow and sunshine to get into the cab of his D7 Caterpillar Tractor. 
While working out on the ice of the Beaufort Sea you will experience some wild weather.  
Here, the wind is blowing along the surface of the ice, picking up snow and ice particles on its way.
Just 10 ft above the apparent "storm" the sky is clear and blue.
This is a common weather phenomenon out on the ice, north of the coast of Alaska.
