Week 1 at the Pole

What’s new at the Pole? Well, some new people are there—it’s still summer, so groups of people are still coming and going. And that means some new beards are being grown, too. But some things aren’t new, like the snow. It’s always there. Even though it doesn’t fall much from the sky, the snow arrives with the winds, and it accumulates and needs to be periodically moved out of the way. Bulldozers are called to the task when clearing snow from around the station.
