Day 8 – Cold and sick

Outside is cold. We are nudging 60 degrees. In fact, I have been writing for a while and we could already be past 60 South. The pack ice is everywhere. It is snowing outside. The snow is coming at a 180 degree angle!

One can't go out even for a minute without a hat and coat and gloves.  I seem to now have a chest infection, which I think I got from running outside when I needed to, and to watch the horizon during my seasickness period. Will be seeing the doctor today, at his own insistence. My voice was gone for almost 2 days as well.

It gets light around 3 am. Pretty soon it will be light all the time.
