I’m pretty excited to be working on a story about the Barrow Blizzard from  Utqiagvik, Alaska. These amazing kids strap on skates and brave -30 degree weather and a decaying outdoor rink to play the game they love. When asked if they ever get cold, the laugh and say “we just wear hoodies under our gear. It’s too cold to sweat so that keeps us warm. One of our players doesn’t even wear socks when he plays.”
