When you can't fly
Yesterday the weather in McMurdo was a little blustery, preventing the Basler from taking off to fly here and keeping the Twin Otter grounded here. Faced with another day of not flying, the Otter crew gamely volunteered for dishpit duty.

During the winter, we have no DA, or Dining Assistant, so we all take turns spending a full day in the Galley washing pots and pans, wiping down tables, cleaning the floors and vacuuming the carpet, filling up napkin dispensers, doing laundry and making juice. We all rotated through the dishpit four times this winter and the last scheduled person was last week, then we went to a volunteer basis since we were expecting the summer DAs to come in soon to take over.

So it was hugely appreciated that the Kenn Borek crew volunteered to pitch in and they did an outstanding job. The weather looks like it's going to be a bit soupy here all day but I think the Otter crew should take the day off and just watch some movies today.
