Snow situation at KAIRA

Hey! We're back on site again. Normally a very joyful occasion (this is, after all, the coolest LOFAR site on the planet), however this time it was marred by the fact that the receding snow is showing up more and more damage from the great blizzard of 2014.

Still, there is a quite a lot of snow to been seen, as these photographs show (taken on the evening of 02-Jun-2014).

are everywhere now. (Photo: D. McKay-Bukowski)

Fortunately, with this quantity of snow, there are no mosquitoes... yet.
