News Flash - I Survived the Night in an Igloo But Northern Lights and Comet Hidden by Clouds
Yes, we survived our night in the igloo. My teammate, Oonah (a college student from Wales) and I stayed toasty warm; but the smallest member of our team, Eunice (a doctor from Australia) was a little cold all night. All in all, it was a successful night. The temperatures outside were in the mid -20Cs with windchill of -35Cs. Of course we did not have to deal with a windchill since we were in the igloo and the great insulating properties of the snow probably kept the temperatures inside around the -10Cs. I will post my pictures later this evening.
Unfortunately, we were not able to see any northern lights or the comet because we had clouds and snow flurries. We are keeping are fingers crossed that tonight and Tuesday night will be clear. Tuesday night is our last night together as a team. It has been a fun and challenging 1 1/2 weeks and it will sad when we all go our separate ways. Luckily, we will be able to keep in touch as most folks have Facebook and we are sharing each others addresses.
That's all for now...we are heading back out into the field this morning. The low clouds, wind, and snow flakes continue...
