But until then, Snow!
Today it’s snowing. Snowing with the kind of enthusiasm that is usually only attributed to pre-schoolers baking cookies. And of course today is our first day working in the real outdoors, which just indicates that the weather does have some kind of narrative skills, even if they are a little bit misplaced. Today, all being well, we will be taking little geek (our ROV) out for a spin by the pier, pending polar bears of course, and then with the arrival of the ship in the evening we will be meeting our second best friend the AUV. The big news for the day team wise is that we have named our little ROV, he’s “little Hulk”.
We started by checking that the ROV was still working after Wednesday. And hooray hooray it is! Below you can see one of my fellow students checking that the vacuum within the housing is sufficiently vacuumy.
