Our First Storm

We are now living at Penguin Ranch, but have no birds, yet. We want to go to the ice edge by helo to capture a few birds. Unfortunately, the weather had a change of plans for us. The flight was scrubbed and we were hit by a storm, instead.

There is something very comforting about having lots of food and fuel when the snow is swirling about the camp. Here’s a photo of the kitchen larder and we have several coolers outside filled with frozen food. Obviously, it is very easy to keep food cold in the Antarctic – no power generation needed.
