Just in case you were wondering what the weather's like up there, the Magic of the Internet brings us webcams on a research buoy of the North Polar Environmental Observatory (NPEO) which is drifting in the ice, presently at 84.795°N 0.094°W and heading south.

This is nowhere near Fifty Years of Victory but is nonetheless fascinating.

Location (it's the 2008 Buoy #30065 with the magenta track):
