Week 20 at the Pole

The winds kept at it last week. The blowing snow not only obstructs the view when trying to take photos, but it makes it tricky to see the flags that mark your way in this dangerously cold landscape. Thankfully IceCube’s winterovers didn’t have to trek out to the ICL and face the stormy weather. For the most part, it was a fairly relaxing week. The megapuzzle continues, over halfway there, and Johannes made some cool, extra frosty glasses for a birthday celebration. And … the weather did clear at one point, long enough to capture some amazing shots of the Milky Way.
