Frigid 4th

We're having a nice cold snap here at the South Pole, with temperatures regularly dropping below -100°F over the last couple days. It will be interesting to see what our actual lowest low works out to be when all is said and done with this winter. The aurora australis has also been pretty active, and there have been many more displays recently that seem to cover a very large portion of the sky.

At work I have continued to prepare and revise science project manuals, which has also included trying to actually go through the spare parts lists for each of the projects and get them in better order. It's kind of like doing archaeology with some of this stuff, which doesn't look like it has been used in years and years. I just keep fighting the good fight, and hopefully it all works out well in the end.

How low can you go? It sounds like limbo time at the pole!

Her3e in Chicago it is hot and muggy, kind of like inside your sauna. Alas, there is no comfortably frigid outside where I can go get nicely chilled. Nor do I have access to a big walk in cooler any more. Oh, how I envy you!
Happy 4th, and try not to work too hard, ok?
