So the lovely weather has been a wonderful (unrealistic) introduction to Antarctica. However, the Casey Station Warf is still iced in. This is a problem because our work on the marine environment requires access to the marine environment. We have about 2 days of busywork in the lab before we’re twiddling our thumbs waiting to get on the water. So while we love the sun and moderate temperatures, a blizzard right now would be great to blow the rest of that ice out to sea. But just the one.
