Breakup

The big orange blob returned again a few days ago, bringing with it a few more scientists and some trades people to get started on the summer construction projects.  The last month has also seen a massive change in the climate; last time the LMG was here it had to spend a lot of time punching through some thick sea ice, but in the intervening weeks it's all thawed out and broken up.

I set up my camera at various places around station to catch the ice's movement, taking a photo once every ten seconds or so, for hours at a time.  Here's the results.
