Nanook of the North = the Inuit man from the movie of the same name?

He = H/A/M?

Is cold weather relevant? Snow?

Nanook of the North = the Inuit man from the movie of the same name? Yes

He = H/A/M? Yes

Is cold weather relevant? Snow? Yes to both.
But the puzzle is not solved that easily. Why did he feel like Nanook?

Of course it's not. I was only trying to get on the right track. Now, for the lateral part... =)

Are the cold weather and the snow there where the man is? Does he get stuck in a snowstorm? Do the snow and cold weather cause a problem for him?

Is his job relevant? age? family? where he lives?

By "where he lives", do you mean the country? region? city? rural vs. urban? type of house?

Does he live in a region that often gets snow? that hardly ever gets snow? that always has snow?

Did he feel like he dealt with the situation well? Like he behaved like someone from a much snowier region?

Is transport relevant? Did he have to walk through the snow because transport was unavailable due to snow?

Was normal transport available?
Did he use a kind of transport that Nanook would have used? Did he ski? Snowshoe? Drive? Take public transport?

Clarification and hint: He was not really doing anything that Nanook might do, only it might seem that he was, relatively.

Recap and hint: He (call him Fred) is doing something during a rare snow in a Southern locale. It is transportation-related. Come on, you Northern people. What can you do almost without thinking about it that a Southerner probably could not?

Intelligent northern people slow down (vehicle) when it snows, it takes southern people an accident or two to learn this. Is this the situation?

ski? skate?No to either.
Intelligent northern people slow down (vehicle) when it snows, it takes southern people an accident or two to learn this. Is this the situation? Close enough!

***********SPOILER*************
When there was a highly unusual snow in this area a few years ago, Fred had been with a group of friends at the movies & it was snowing when they came out. So, although it wasn't his car, he had to drive everybody home because he was the only one who knew how to drive when there was snow or ice on the roads.

This was because he had lived in the North - and by North I mean from Houston on up. Houston has a well-deserved reputation for being hot and steamy, but it does snow about once in 5 years or so.

He now lives in Dallas, up there north of the Arctic circle.


Thx to Dave, Shez, et al. Mush, you huskies!
