Too cold for me, and I wouldn't enjoy days when the sun doesn't rise for months at a time. I bet they sell a lot of SAD lights. :squirrel:

I am so jealous of that community of how they seem so organized with big business and locals working together.

From the title I thought they were moving all the buildings to a new and safer location. In reality only a very few important structures will be relocated ; most of the 1100 buildings will be demolished and the people will have new businesses and homes built or buy a house that is in a safer area. I guess since there would be no town if the mine was shut down the people gladly accept the move as necessary .
