That's getting awful close


We awoke this morning to find the winds had pushed this VERY large iceberg deep into our harbor, less than a hundred feet off our pier.  It seems to be grounded at the moment so we're not worried about it coming closer, but if it gets stuck here for a while it could present a problem.  Our resupply ship doesn't get back here for another couple of weeks, and hopefully this should float out of here in that time, but if it's still stuck here I'm not sure what we'd do.  You don't easily get a 500 ton chunk of ice to do something it doesn't want to do.
