The blizzard finally relented in the early morning, a light breeze on the tent sounded like a zephyr from some distant warm sea. But all was not easy, the damp from airborne drift in -3c balminess, seeped into most things, suddenly became icy and the now -15 felt more like -35. Cloud
still hangs heavily across the sky but a wind crust had coated the ocean's surface making for speedy skiing.

A new realm seemed to have emerged since the blizz with huge fresh blocks strewn among the icy fields. The wind had compressed the pack ice creating new aquamarine pressure ridges that glowed eerily in the murk. The biggest, an angular slab 1.5m thick was enough inspiration to climb, admire the view and slide back down its slippery slope. We're now camped next to it, a mere half day travel from the North Pole under current conditions. Eric
