Large construction work in progress

Construction of the new garage

Scene from the construction of the new garage.

Today was the day for heavy metal, cranes and hard hats, as we raised the arches for our new garage. The fixed crane was a huge asset. While some were busy constructing, others were marking out the outlines of the last but major structures of NEEM camp: The main dome building and the drill and science trenches.

What we have done today:

  1. Raised frame for our new garage.
  2. Marking out the outlines of the main dome, drilling, and science trenches.
  3. Blowing snow along the sides of the drill trench.
  4. Assembling of the new snow blower.

Weather: In the morning nice: -17 C, 7 knots wind from SE. Sunshine. In the evening overcast and snow, -10 C and 3 knots wind from S.
