Normal Service Resumes
Outside, the gale had driven falling snow into every nook and cranny. Although the main buildings are raised on legs to reduce snow accumulation, the garage and Drewery sit on the surface causing vortexes to deposit huge quantities on their lee-ward sides.

Yesterday we dug out the sledges and skidoos. Some were covered by over a meter of snow!
Chris discovers a skidoo
I'm very pleased with the return of bright skies. For the past six weeks, most trips outside have been greeted with an enthusiasm normally reserved for the M42, but yesterday there was enough light for a run before breakfast, a pleasant (and fast) ski to the CASLab in the morning, and enough left over for digging after lunch. I went to bed pleasantly knackered for the first time in ages!
