You can see in the webcam image taken just a short while ago that they are continuing to clear the snow. My guess is that the Baslers (DC3s) will arrive tomorrow, and they need to be in place before our flight arrives to transport passengers to other stations."

"7 Nov 2015 7:20 pm ET: My research team and I are now in Cape Town, SA awaiting our flight to Novolazarevskaya Station in Antarctica. The first flight made it down but its return to Cape Town was delayed for a day due to less than good weather at Novo that kicked up just before they were to depart."
