Emerging from winter
Today was the first "nice" day in a while, with winds finally under 15 knots. I had a mission, to take down my flags that I had been flying at the geographic pole, so I wandered around a bit and took a few photos of what the station looks like after a winter.
Some pretty impressive drifts formed between the A4 and B1 wings. The prevailing direction of wind is from the opposite side of the station and it's supposed to whip through under the bottom of the station and not deposit too much snow but actually we do see quite a bit of drifting on the front side and parts of the back.
Good thing we have heavy machinery to do most of the big snow removal as the shovels just about need shoveling out themselves.
The BBQ in the back corner of the A2 first floor deck hasn't seen much action lately.
And the sun should be popping up in just 3 days now...
