NY Blizzard Timelapse

December 2010 Blizzard Timelapse

By now the entire world knows that New York was hit by a huge blizzard last night. Being Swiss, I couldn’t be happier. Just so that you understand how much snow we got, watch this blizzard timelapse. It totally made me smile and go “more, more more!”

It was done by Michael Black and shot with a Canon DLSR on a tripod with a remote timer taking a photo every five minutes. Watch approximately 20 hours in 40 seconds.

Beijing has coldest year since 1970

Beijing has coldest year since 1970

‘The Age’:

A FREEZING cold front swept over much of northern China on Sunday with snowstorms snarling traffic and air travel, while some of the coldest temperatures in decades were forecast for coming days.

Gale-force winds sweeping down from Siberia could result in temperatures as low as minus 16 degrees in the capital today, the Beijing meteorological station said.

Such temperatures are believed to be the coldest in the capital in 40 years.
