Today was the scheduled date for our final trip of the season to fly to the Ice and our group currently on the Ice to fly off. Neither is going to happen today. Visibility at the Union Glacier is just not good enough to permit the flight to be called in. That’s par for the course in Antarctica. And hey, way better to be safe than sorry. Both groups – the one in Punta and the one on the Ice – are safe and warm. Both teams obviously chomping at the bit, for different reasons, but both understand where they are and where they’re going. What the heck, it’s only Antarctica!
