The sun is back today after several days of high winds and cloud cover. Unbelievably it is now above the horizon for 5 hours but the drifting snow which is obscuring the horizon means that we will only have seen it today for about 3 hrs. There is still no warmth from the sun as it’s at a very low angle but above us we can see a pale blue sky and it’s very pleasant to have sunlight streaming through the ice covered caboose window.
