More of my "back yard"
Here's more of what I can see from the back of my building. Spoolhenge is off to the left of the picture. This is basically the South Pole's warehouse district. There are rows and rows of boxes of stuff. If they need something for the winter, they bring it into or close to the station. The rest is left here all winter, and turns into drifts of snow. When summer comes, the winterover residents get out the bulldozers and uncover everything. For this reason, boxes are labelled "Driftable" if it's safe for them to be stored in this area.
