Go Go Go!!!
Today the wind dropped to nearly nothing, meaning Frisbee, running and, more importantly, two ozone-studying flights for Tom's unmanned aerial vehicle. The heat of the sun is now obvious, even through a balaclava which we now wear to protect from UV blasting through the open ozone hole. Although air temperature is still in the -20Cs, the buildings absorb enough heat to melt snow, giving the an end-of-season ski resort look.
