Snow, snow.... and snow

Now with all the snow storms that have been plaguing the East coast and Midwest I remembered that many years ago, I read in some book that the Eskimos (Inuit, Aivilik and Igloolik) have 31 specific terms for snow! Incredible isn't it!


If you want to learn about the Inuit language, there is a link below for that. To tell you the truth, I have seen several sites about their language and I am still clueless. I admit that I've never seen an Inuit text before and certainly never heard it spoken. So from my point of view it seems too complicated for me to try to understand the basics of this language.
