Strange Ice January 9, 2012January 9, 2012 | kiell These weird stacked snow boulders appeared out by the RF satellite buildings over a grave shift one night. They were big. Almost big enough to hide a loader, but not quite. I can still see you. Share this:EmailFacebookPrintLike this:Like Loading... Related

Kiell, This time of year we see giant snow objects and piles near the station. How do they eventually disappear? Really like you showing us days in the life of polies.
Thanks Charles! They will eventually be pushed away by heavy equipment to a place where the snow won’t blow back!
Can you imagine if that’s how high snow was at one point? 😀
When I was a kid in Minnesota, I could have sworn snow was that high! The drifting here actually buries everything eventually, so someday it might be that high.. The original station from the 1950s was buried about 25 feet under the ice due to drifting. You can read about that here: http://kiellanddaniel.wordpress.com/2011/01/16/and-then-there-was-one-old-pole-blast/ if you want.
Thanks for checking out the blog!
Wow that IS BIG! 😀
This look like Megan Whitmore’s work to me!
OMG Kiell….I want your job, your life. I’m having so much fun reading your blog. Is there a need for midwives at the pole?
