A neat look at Condition 1 in Antarctica. (Condition 1 is the worst weather and it's forbidden to leave the buildings)

Actually, that airlock room looks a LOT like around the doors at our old place in Ontario during our last winter there!

The part that impressed me wasn't that the snow had gotten through any opening. It was she had to struggle to close the door. I think that described everything you needed to know right there.

And, of course, the fact that they actually have rules about going out in that kind of shit says something about the people who go work in Antarctica...
