The Ice has not left! We got back from our little mock sampling trip yesterday and the ice was on its way back. The wind had shifted and the mass of ice flowing toward us reminded me of a creepshow2 story where a roving blob eats everything in sight. Can’t beat that kind of mental visualization while stuck on an island in Antarctica, at least it isn’t the THING. So the point of all that was just to say that the Ice is back and we are repeating the same thing over and over again.
Maybe something will happen soon.
Paty, The PI in charge of organizing everything down here is leaving on Tuesday of next week. She is not happy about not being able to start any real science.
