Christmas in McMurdo

Two days ago, on Christmas Eve, the BLAST team showed up to work and halfheartedly ran through the pre-flight checklist. The weather was poor, and we were pretty certain we weren’t even going to go outside for pickup. We didn’t. Early in the morning, we officially scrubbed for the day, and for the next day too. So, we would have Christmas off, but we would rather have had to work all day if it meant we’d launch.

Instead of launch pictures, I have a few of the decorations around town. I wasn’t as thorough as I should have been, but I’ll probably be able to supplement my collection with Matt’s. As always, Matt tirelessly documented the Christmas Eve party and the big Christmas dinner yesterday.

Merry Christmas everyone! (Or at least everyone everywhere that it’s still Christmas.)
