Seartinly something will make troubble, rain, rain and after that more rain and thunderstorm, heavy one. Sunday weather on the station was wet, the folks and gear wet, all and everything wet. The air inside station wet from all wet gear and people. They said, wet Sunday. Hopefully there will not be som much rain on Monday. Forecast for Tuseday sais snow! and temp arround zero celsius. Nice for an polarbear but flat footed humans noooooway. They still trying to go on Monday afternoon and be on air early Tusday morning. Let see how long they stand out.
