Where Cold Performs the Effect of Fire

"…a frozen continent
Lies dark and wild, beat with perpetual storms
Of whirlwind and dire hail…
The parching air burns frore,
and cold performs the effect of fire."

-- John Milton, Paradise Lost II:587-595.

'Frore' refers to frostlike.

And below, a link to Electric Sky, who currently distributes "The Deadly Glacier", the documentary of my 2000-2004 expeditions to cross Iceland's Vatnajokull ice cap, alone, in winter; the clip can be seen here.
