This special collection includes very cold wind sounds from three separate snow storms in North Idaho. Recorded at 24-Bit 96kHz in 2008 and 2010, these blizzards from the great white north swept in and completely froze everything in its path.
The blizzard in 2008 roared for one day and blew snow and debris in all directions. The temperature had been at -5 degrees for a few days before so there were icy snow crystals and leaves whipping around. The location I recorded at was right near my electrical service wires and every so often they made a nice whistling sound.
The blizzard in late 2010 was producing 70 MPH Gusts with susdtained wind at 35MPH for two whole days. I was able to set the CSS-5 right outside my front door in the middle of the night and record for only 10 minutes at a time Because the temperature was -10 degrees with wind chills up to -25 degrees.
The other windstorm in late 2010 blew in and was more like the steady 25 MPH wind you would experience on a daily basis in the desert South West. I was able to set the CSS-5 near my garden fence which is like large chicken wire. It was very cold and the gear was freezing so I was not able to get as much as I wanted. I hope you enjoy my North Idaho winter winds. -Frank
