At exactly 1400 today it took off. It's gone. No more plane...nada. The summer season is officially over. All of the summer folks have left. McMurdo is now the land of the Winterover. I will miss a few of the folks that have left, but it is nice to be down to a small population. The small town that I expected to find in late February. We number 125 ... 34 women and 91 men. I think it's going to be a very good winter.
