What was the temperature this morning

Anne Marie Wotkyns

Hi There!This morning (it's Sunday, Jan. 16 here) the temperature was about -3.3 C. Right now at 1:30 pm, it is -1 C. The sun is shining and if you are in the sun, out of the wind, the metal deck of the ship is so warm you can sit outside in only a long sleeve t-shirt and jeans, like I just did! But, the ice in McMurdo Sound where we are still ice-breaking is about a meter thick, so it's still pretty cold!
We just passed about 10 Weddell Seals napping on the ice - soaking up the sun!
