Ice and Medicine at the end of the earth

From Ice to Water

There has been a dramatic change in the view from the station over the past several weeks.  There is water in front of the station for the first time in the past decade.  The road that we used to drive on and the ice runway broke apart and floated out to sea yesterday afternoon. 

Here is a collection of photos taken over the past several months.

    We lost almost all of our snow this week too.
    Sucks, I had a full moon ski jaunt planned for Friday night. Your posts have been fun and
    interesting to read. Thanks, Dave
