Skidoo SnowBlowing

 Thursday 11th of August 2016

Sverrir on a skidoo moving the snowblower.

The surface is now tidy and all equipment is packed on sledges. The snow blower is being moved to it’s storage place in the garage. Sverrir has a special technique to move the snow blower – sitting on a skidoo!

What we have done today:

  1. Packed the last two weatherports
  2. Took down watersystem and cleaned snowmelter
  3. Took satellite system and satellite disc down and stored
  4. Documented medicine in camp and packed non-freeze medicine for retro

Weather today: Blue sky all day with groundfog in the early morning hours. Temperatures -27 during night and evening increasing to -13 °C during the day. Wind 5-7 kn from WSW.
