Thanksgiving!

The station is especially quiet today since most people are sleeping in and maybe working a half day, because the station is celebrating Thanksgiving tonight. Normally the galley serves cafeteria-style dinner from 5PM to 7:30PM but tonight's dinner will be a more formal affair with two separate seatings. I'll be at the second seating along with the rest of the IceCube/UW crew, and I'll be serving pie for the first seating.

Yesterday I knocked off a bunch of tasks that had built up while I was traveling, but I don't want to launch into anything major today so I'll likely just play with some software I've been working on in my spare time.

After from tonight's dinner, the next exciting event will be the arrival of the first traverse of the season, where a group of people drive from McMurdo to the South Pole (and various other camps along the way) to deliver fuel. They'll be arriving something in the next week.
