I slept well last night, but am still feeling a little out of it. It is probably because of the long journey, the transition from northern to southern hemisphere, and the dehydartion.
It is very cold here (-40 Celsius with windchill). Our “lab” building this year is outside “town”, so it is a an8 min walk from town to lab through open area. Exposed and lightly covered body parts, such as nose and legs got really cold in the short walk. I cannot imagine how the early explorers survived here.
The foggy weather also prevented the helicopter flights that were scheduled to leave for Lake Bonney with the carpenters. This means we will have at least 1 day delay in our plans.
My cushy dorm room has a rather drafty window. Unfortunately, it cannot be fixed till tomorrow. So I expect a rather cold night.
