Weather: Con 2

Condition 2 today, that means the weather's worse than usual down here in Antarctica and no planes are flying today. The freedom birds, the planes to get us off the island, have been weather cancelled two days in a row. Lots of anxious people waiting to get out of here...good luck, maybe tomorrow.

I drove out to Pegasus this morning in white out conditions to get the control tower crew since the airfield is closed.

Two days ago, clear blue skies and quite cold.

Photo from the drivers seat, a whiteout.

Total whiteout from milepost 6-13, couldn't see 25 feet.
Driving at 3 mph and hoping I'm on the road...
At Pegasus a bit more visibility but lots of blowing snow.

Blowing snow and big drifts.

The Galley, the orange building, is only 16' away.
