Captain R.F. Scott, The Uncertainty Of These Conditions Is Beyond Words
On Friday night it grew overcast and the wind went to the south. During the whole of yesterday and last night it blew a moderate blizzard—the temperature at highest +5°, a relatively small amount of drift. On Friday night the ice in the Strait went out from a line meeting the shore ¾ mile north of Hut Point. A crack off Hut Point and curving to N.W. opened to about 15 or 20 feet, the opening continuing on the north side of the Point. It is strange that the ice thus opened should have remained.

Sunday next before Easter. Palm Sunday. Prayers were read. The weather was not good, but Cherry and I went up Arrival Heights to see the open water extent...
Tryggve Gran, With Luck...
With luck this will be the last Sunday we spend in the hut. Tomorrow we shall make an attempt to reach Cape Evans.
