We stay ... and stay
It's Tuesday afternoon, and we're still here. Shortly after my last posting, Helo Ops threw in the towel for the day - the weather wasn't getting any better.
Today was the same story - calls every few hours, before finally calling things off. The weather was better than yesterday, but not enough better. The photo above, taken around 6 pm, shows the pass that the helicopter would have to fly over, with lots of clouds. This is worse than it was during the day, but not a lot worse.
So, we spend the day taking it easy, waiting for the call to action to disassemble camp. All of our science gear is well buried; we're collecting data, but can't do any more fiddling.
Tomorrow for sure. We hope.
