More Prudhoe Bay Pictures

As you can see, I'm in the mood to post a few pictures.

We had blizzard on Wed, with was blowing 48 mph with gusts to 65 mph for about 18 hours. The sea ice out around the island is still new enough that the wind can move it around. So a rubble pile built up against the west side. It's quite spectacular really, and a bit scary for the folks who live out there. If it had kept building it would have crashed over the sheet pile wall built to keep it out.
And then here are some sunrise pictures. The sun has just come up over the horizon the past few days. So these are really sunset pictures too :-)

This one on the 22nd was taken from my office window at the airport.
This one from the 24th was taken on the island.
