The feeling of being buried alive must have produced a lot of cases of claustrophobia.

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.
