Storm!

Today we had the real deal Antarctica.  We started off the day working on the drill.  It was a bit cloudy and cold but didn’t seem to be all that worrisome.

Within a matter of minutes we had 30-40 mph winds and white out conditions.  We were forced to pack up camp and trundle on back inside for a safety stand down.  Station declared condition 1 weather which is not safe to be out working in.   IMG_0004
