The Weather Files: Total Impact, Season 2, Episode 1
The Weather Files: Total Impact “takes viewers inside extreme monster storms and natural disasters through the eyes of real-life survivors, first responders and scientific experts.”
I had the opportunity to check out the first episode of the second season called ‘Snowmageddon’.
The first part of the show focused on one of the worst blizzards to ever hit St. Johns, Newfoundland in January 2020. The blizzard featured 140km/hr winds and 76 inches of snow.
Without giving up too much, I wrote a few notes about the first episode.
As you watch the show you learn about the weather conditions from experts as well as two stories during the snowfall.
One focused on Kyle and Shaundell Snow who were having a baby during these extreme circumstances. The couple pulled into a hospital just as the storm started. With the State of Emergency in effect, the couple were advised to stay put.
The other told the devastating story of missing Newfoundland man Josh Wall. He vanished after leaving his home during the snowfall. We hear from parents Nora and Wayne Wall.
‘Snowmageddon’ shows how the weather can impact the daily lives of individuals, how lending a hand to support others can go a long way and the impact of a disaster can have on our environment.
The conclusion of the episode heads over to Yukon. We see how “snow flowers form and show how artificial glaciers are already being used to alleviate drought, as global warming shrinks the ice print on the planet.”
Overall, it was an enjoyable watch.
Check out the premiere on Monday, January 18 at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Cottage Life.
