Germans Playing in the Wind

2012-02-08 09:22:21.000 – Rebecca Scholand,  Operations Assistant


Today is Wednesday and as always shift change day. Normally there is a full change of the shift and the people who have been here, however today will be a little different. Our shift will return to the valley and the other shift will arrive, but the three German teachers and nine students will continue to stay through Saturday.

So far their week has been exciting with various weather conditions for the students to go out and explore in. When they arrived to the summit on Sunday they had clear skies and great visibility. Monday took a full swing in the opposite direction with little to no visibility and winds that were hurricane force. I was able to get outside and film the students exploring this wind speed for the first time.
