What better way to spend a nice sunny day than lying on a blanket enjoying an ice cream cone. That’s what IceCube’s winterovers thought. No matter that the nice day is at the South Pole, sunny maybe but definitely not warm. They are actually lounging for their photo session at the ceremonial South Pole. It was an active week at the Pole, with equipment upgrades and replacements continuing at the ICL and lots of outdoor digging and snow removal to uncover and inspect equipment. And Kathrin shared German Christmas cookies with the station to celebrate the beginning of the season.
