Captain R.F. Scott, Ice Holding To The South But Cleared To The North
Strong easterly wind on ridge to-day rushing down over slopes on western side.
Ice holding south from about Hut Point, but cleared ½ to ¾ mile from shore to northward. Cleared in patches also, I am told, on both sides of Glacier Tongue, which is annoying. A regular local wind. The Barrier edge can be seen clearly all along, showing there is little or no drift. Have been out over the Gap for walk. Glad to say majority of people seem anxious to get exercise, but one or two like the fire better.
Dr. E.A. Wilson, Bad Weather - Wind & Drift
Bad weather—wind and drift. Went to Gap with Wright and could see there was no drift on Barrier though it was blowing hard and drifting heavily here.
