What are the ledges under the windows for? The ones with stairs (ladders?) leading to them.

Sara..Your comment disappeared ... The ledges under the windows is used if there is Piteraq ... when the shutters to be closed, I am on the ledges.Here is an explanation of Piteraq... A Piteraq is a cold Katabatic wind which originates on the Greenlandic icecap and sweeps down to the east coast. Piteraqs are most common in the fall and winter. Wind speeds typically reach 50 to 80 m/s. On February 6th 1970 the community Tasiilaq was hit by very strong Piteraq causing severe damage. Since the beginning of the 1970 special Piteraq warnings are issued by the Danish Meteorological Institute.
