Annual precipitation in Nome is very light. Ferocious zephyrs tear ice particles off the frozen sea in winter and it piles up. Highways once used pieces of lath with a strip of reflective tape to guide drivers or snow machine operators during frequent white-outs. Drifts downwind from one of those laths might be eight feet high.

So a California architect was hired to design a regional high school there. He looked at the precip figures and gave it a flat roof. It was whipped up one summer and came down that winter.
