Oh its so COLD today

Hi All well it has been a while since I have added anything here. I have been busy busy and to tell the truth a little lazy. I have been working hard getting my tasks done before all the new arrivals come in and Jar the senses of us winter-overs. It is just about Winfly (winter fly in) and we will double the population of our small station. not only that but we are losing almost 70% of the winter overs. our new count will be around 400 souls. I will be one of the few staying until Oct or beyond. This winter has had its up and downs but it is all good I guess. It is down right cold here right now. -100f and below right now with wind chill. I was working outside for a few hours when it was only -80's but now I am in and not to much to do so I thought I would update this. I know a lot of you are in the hottest months where you are so there is probably a 200 degree diffrence in where we are temp wise. When all the new people come in they will all be tan and full of energy and all of us that have been here for the last 6 months in complete cold and darkness will be pasty white and speaking in short sentances...lol. On the bright side though we can see the pink of the sun coming back into our area. it is supposed to rise over the horizon again on the 20th of Aug. that will be a welcome sight. I don't think I miss the sun much when it is gone but it sure is nice to see it coming back. I don't know if it because it means I am closer to getting out of here or if it is just that it seems warmer with the sun up. well not much else to add so have a great day and hope it is not to hot for you where you are.
