|Above, a closer view showing the drift that has built up in front of the station, and how the shape of it has changed since the beveled leading edge has been completed.|
|A new and old look toward the "backyard" across the power plant arch. Yes, the left photo is 2008, still another year or so before A1 gets gray siding.|
|From this vantage point one used to be able to look into the entrance of the dome. On the right (2005) the entrance is still there, just hidden behind the drift. On the left (2008) the door is gone, but the arch has been jacked up and the top of it isn't buried yet.|
Here's the 2008 and 2005 sunrise views of the dome looking out my A1-105 bedroom window.
Here's a 2008 view of the station from near the dark sector side of the skiway...and the same scene in 2005.
Something new this year...this big snowdrift pile between A and B pods directly downwind of the new banner/wind deflector, which is directly above me here.
