Arctic Sea Ice

It's been - 0 deg C over the last week with plenty of snow. Many of us MacTown veterans are reminiscing on last years weather of sunshine for weeks and t-shirt, shorts, little tiki huts, margaritas, etc. Last year it snowed maybe 3 days, this year I've seen snow for 30 days and the summer is only halfway there. The Ross Sea Ice outside our station ain't melting yet and there aren't too many seals. Antarctic cooling? Arctic warming? Yin and yang.
