Winds & Snow storms
This evening we were treated to a northern lights show. Photos will follow when I can download them from my camera. Needless to say, they don’t look half bad.
The cycle of things here revolves around watching out the windows for approaching mushers. We Re only able to pick up satellite signal so all Comms goes via satellite data phones. We don’t have the luxury of the GPS tracker. This lack of early warning has lead to some close calls and mad scurrying around to ensure we are out and waiting for the teams as the arrive. The average time I. The checkpoint thus far is a little over one minute. There is currently a 30 knot wind with snow outside. Not the sort of conditions favorable to hanging around outside.
