Astrobiologist Dale Andersen Antarctic Status Report 5 November 2018: Strong Winds at Lake Untersee

“Just after getting a couple of tents set up today, the winds started pounding us with 60 knot gusts, and probably increasing this evening to what are likely 75-80 knot winds.”

“We spent another few hours outside trying to protect our new homes, now we hope to stay indoors for awhile as this storm moves by. We do have a metal sea container that could provide a safe-house if needed. But I do not think it will come to that!”
