Btw, I’m an independent, folks, if the GOP does something constructive on, well, anything,…I’ll report here.
Quick Dark Snow update. I’ve made contact a group of researchers who are heading up to the ice sheet edge today, and invited me along. Will most likely be camping on the ice tonight, back tomorrow.
