Another day, another record

Last night plunged past the November cold record that we set two days ago, dropping down to -17c (1.4f) on a clear, calm night.

This hasn't helped our ice-in situation at all; the LMG is still 2.2 miles away, and unable to get into station.  They did try again today; in three hours of bashing, they made it half a boat length closer.  No one is sure what's going to happen next, but baring some kind of drastic change in the weather, I have a feeling they're turning around and heading for Chile in the next couple of days.
