March 26, 1912: Bad weather at Cape Evans–what about the Polar Party on the Barrier?

–from Tryggve Gran’s diary, published as “The Norwegian with Scott”–

“26 March.  I had rather a shock this afternoon when I went up to feed the dogs and found one of them dead.  It was the lead dog that had suffered so much from the bad weather.  It will find its last resting place in McMurdo Sound.  The weather has been vile, the worst for a long time.  Snow has been driven by a wind which gusted up to 150 km.p.h.”
