Back on The Ice
My daughter Sparky is back in Antarctica for another season. No, that is not her photo above, but rather one that I found through google. It kind of encompasses a little of the highlights...penguins, a live volcano, Erebus, and lots of snow and ice.
She will be working out of McMurdo again, but on a team that sets up the scientific base camps, who live mostly in tents while setting up the bases. That sounds so cold. And her stories are always ones that make me thankful to live in the opposite of that environment.
Exhibit A....This is the view out my back door. Snow and ice or green and humid. Some days I wish for the other, but just for a second or two.
Either way, I always miss her. Wishing her another successful season far, far away. And time to start packing up the care packages. She always loves receiving them and letters.
