Building pallets

Nice to build pallets in good weather

Pallet building can be a pleasure in good weather.

Weather: We had clouds and full overcast in the morning. After noon the sky was blue. During night temperatures dropped to -26.6° with low winds. Max -10°. Wind 3-5 kn from SE.

Relaxing after a good day work 
After a good day work and building pallets with 80 heavy ice boxes, Lizzie, Julie, Anne and Emilie are enjoying a game of cards after dinner. The low orange sun is lightening the room.
