Order dominates in the drillers workshop.

Work started at 10:00 am today and there was packing and documenting on the agenda in the whole camp. Suddenly order seemed to appear all over camp. The drillers workshop is in well order for next year with the drill heads and other very specialized items neatly lined up.

-22.953°C. Coldest temperature is -29.068°C at the depth 240 m.
