Oh! The painful irony...

Let me set the scene. It's Saturday evening. We've had a good week and have got a lot done. T'Pau booms from the kitchen as Ant puts the finishing touches to this week's piece d' resistance. In the lounge, Richard is mixing gin and tonic apperitifs. I offer to fill the ice bucket. And...

...We're out of ice!

Standing atop nearly 70% of the World's fresh water supply and surounded by snow, we are out of ice. This is the kind of hardship the 21st century Antarctic Hero (tm) has to face.

I hate that, you're holding a fancy dinner party and run out of ice for ones G and Ts. You hurriedly fill up the ice trays in youre freezer and somehow expect them to turn to solid ice in about 10 minutes...

So how long would an ice tray filled with cold water take to freeze if left outside the kitchen door down there - on an average day?

It's a harsh continent.
