We’ve had a nasty storm here the last few days. It started Wednesday, with blowing snow. Soon we had a LOT of snow, and all flights have been canceled. Ross, Diana, Byron, Breana and Ed are stuck in McMurdo, while Becky, Poage, and Elizabeth are stuck out at various camps in Taylor Valley.

It’s very frustrating, because we’re getting behind more and more every day. We’re only here for a short amount of time, and sitting around McMurdo is not our idea of fun. We decided to take a team picture in the snow, looking rugged and very “Antarctic.”

Rugged Wormherders

Cheers from McMurdo Station!
