Our friends at Summit Station welcomed the sun yesterday. "I could almost even feel its warmth on my face.... almost," wrote station manager Ben Toth.
The sun is returning, and so is a small plane, which should approach the station via Iceland tomorrow. It will drop off fresh veggies and an advance team of staff, then fly to Kangerlussuaq to pick up the remaining staff waiting to get in to Summit. It's time for a fresh crew to prepare for the busy research season ahead.
So far, the forecast is favorable, so cross your fingers. Meanwhile, here's another picture of the dawn.
