Life as usual continued at McMurdo Station, like the rest of the world, past the May 21 Doomsday deadline. Wouldn’t it be nice if the self-professed Bible “scholar” who did the math and conned people out of more than $70 million in donations returned that money with an apology?
But I digress.
While thousands of people apparently were quitting their jobs, spending their savings and handing out pamphlets warning of the Apocalypse, we here at McMurdo were getting our yearbook photos taken. Yes, the Winter-Overs have a yearbook. I’m not getting one, because I realized recently that I have looked at the yearbooks I do have exactly… uh… zero times.
That said, here’s the official Winter-Over 2011 Galley photo. One person is missing, but I think it captures us pretty well.
