It might sound silly, but I've wanted to see real-live pancake ice for as long as I can remember. I always thought it was something I'd have to go to Antarctica to see, and now here it is...only steps away from my practice room!
Don't think this eliminates my desire to go to Antarctica someday. It's still on my dream to-do list...if only because (as I recently learned in the fantastic new NOVA program "Secrets Beneath the Ice") residents and visitors have to consume a diet of 6000 daily calories so their body has enough fuel to stay warm. Yumm! My paradise for sure!
