Hi all,

2N was a slow leaker. It was cut down early this morning. 

We still have a few days until the Winds from the Coronal Hole may or may not hit us. There are a number of larger sunspots coming around the Earthward facing side of the sun. Hopefully next week will bring more geomagnetic storms.

Temp.: -5. C
Wind speed: 11 knots

Halley 6: 
Temp.: -5.6 C
