Hi Connie
The internet has slowed to a crawl here this summer so I’m a bit late getting answers to people. Tell John that all is well down here. The iceberg has moved to the north which allowed the ships to all get in. The fuel tanker left this morning and the container ship comes in on thursday. The russian icebreaker is standing by. In the end the ice was thin enough that we didn’t really need a rescue, but on the other hand, if things had stayed the way they looked when we first requested them, they would have been station savers. So, from my end a big thanks to them for standing by.
Hope John gets better. Will he be coming back when he heals or is this it for him.
