At 11:35 pm last night we got the notice that our flight was going to be canceled due to weather. Since this weekend is the Thanksgiving holiday, there will be no more flights on Saturday or Sunday, so our next possible flight is next Monday. This is a bummer because it delays us even more, but also because I’ve heard that Thanksgiving is a lot of fun in McMurdo. Since we have a couple of days off we are heading to Akaroa for a couple of days. This is really nice for the people who just arrived, but I am antsy to get to Antarctica.
