Observing The Sunrise

This morning dawned with a wonderful sunrise and so far the day has continued to be sunny and warm although a little breezy at times. If you look carefully at the sunrise picture, which was taken from the observation deck, you should notice the lack of the guard rail. This is because it’s completely buried under snow and rime ice – certainly the best accumulation I’ve seen up here in the past three winters.

From late this morning we have also been seeing some really impressive Lenticular clouds to our south and east. Some even showed iridescence around the edges. Being able to see clouds and blue sky makes such a change from the usual gray fog!

Since it was so nice outside Drew and I decided to try and dig out the living room window this morning. After tunneling for ten feet or so through the snow drift we finally made it. The living area tends to be quite dark at the best of times and when the window is blocked it is permanent nighttime downstairs.

Oh no – just discovered that someone has eaten the last bar of chocolate left by the German students who were with us at the start of this shift. Now that’s really put a damper on things.
