As I was traveling to the computer lab this morning I was reminded once again how quiet the Arctic can be. In places there are no trees, few plants, and few animals. When the wind dies down, the Arctic becomes quiet, very quiet. The quietness is surely one of the most unique features of the Arctic.

Don't be mislead, however. The Arctic can howl and thunder with all the power of a midwestern thunderstorm spewing tornados while smashing headlong into a "Canadian Express' plummeting full speed towards the Carbebean from the Canadian Arctic. Couple this with the smashing, crashing sounds of exploding ice as the bergs form and the Arctic speaks with a roar.

Without a doubt, from one extreme to the other, the Arctic speaks not at all or with a thunderous roar.

I think that I would feel lonely even if there were other people around in that silence. I bet that it was peaceful,though. I'd probably feel more comfortable when it was noisey. laugh.gif
