The sea ice has broken up to the Delbridge Islands, near the Erebus Ice tongue. Armatage isn’t open and probably won’t be until the SAR and FSTP people come in at Winfly. Last year it was buckling and parts of it went underwater. C16, iceberg that almost cut off the icebreakers had moved into Mcmurdo sound and then drifted off. It hit the end of the Drygloski ice tongue and broke off the tip.
Maybe the ice will go back to normal this year and break up. It’s been too many years since we’ve had whales in front of town.
Ian, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the ski trips no matter what. I’ll be leaving at winfly and coming back at the beginning of October, so make sure you look all of us up.
Z, are you coming back?
