Sparks on the foremast

02:00 12 October: Most of the science team was asleep after that heroic/insane glider recovery, Kunuk and I were up on the bridge with the second mate when a series of sparks lit up the bottom of the mast and the ice lights went out. Lovely. So off goes the general alarm, and now we're all up in the main lab, waiting to the excitement while the crew tracks this annoyance down and searches the boat for problems.

On the whole, it's better than being woken up at 2 AM by drunks yelling in the 7-11 parking lot...
