Man Attempts to Take a Simple Drink While Experiencing Extremely Windy Conditions in Iceland

While staying at Hotel Búðir in Iceland in March 2014, Mark Tretter attempted to take what would usually be a simple drink of water in extremely windy conditions. Needless to say, Tretter’s attempt was about as successful as he suspected it would be.

For those of you wondering, I was in the (wind) shadow of the fantastic hotel at Budir Iceland, I had already lost my pair of eyeglasses in a prior venture into the wind, then decided to make this scene inspired by a video I saw made at the top of Mount Washington decades ago where a couple was served breakfast out on the patio of the observation deck in a holwing 100+ MPH wind. I estimate the wind this day was about 75-80 MPH.
