Summary
In this program, Quebecois talk about the severe winter weather of Montreal and Guadeloupeans recall what it was like to live through Hurricane Hugo. The video also spotlights the "enchanted island" children's project on Guadeloupe's tranquil Terre-de-Bas and visits Montreal's winter-defying underground city, a perpetually temperate world beneath the urban surface-miles of pavement where thousands of "storm swallowers" work around the clock to clear away tons and tons of snow.
