Sticky weather continues

The garage this afternoon

The garage this afternoon, just before the wind died, and we got the roof and walls on.

It’s hard for people to keep occupied when most tasks in camp involves a certain amount of good weather. Strong winds, warm temperatures and constantly moving snow are not among the good things in camp right now.

As we are expecting flights to the camp tomorrow, we put a lot of effort into making the skiway really good. A piece of luck blew our way as the wind suddenly abated just after dinner. Sverrir rushed into the kitchen: “Let’s go put the cover on the garage”. Everybody jumped up, and in two hours the garage was secure and complete. One hour later, wind and snow came again.

What we have done today:

  1. Garage complete.
  2. Grooming and tilling skiway.
  3. Cleaning up in camp in preparation of more snow drifts.

Weather: In the morning: broken ceiling -8 C, 14 knots wind from S. Visibility 1 mile. Drifting snow, snow showers. At 19.00 winds at 4 knots. At 23.00 overcast , -9 C and 15 knots wind from S, snow, blowing snow, visibility ¼ mile.
