Ann Curry and the Today Show team finally made it to the South Pole. Many of the winter-overs that got stuck here for more than a week blamed her for the long delay. Somehow she must have had some really bad karma. Finally, last night they came in for a little more than an hour, returning on the same plane on which they got here.
Just before going to bed I had a cup of team in the Gallery and people starting looking out the windows.
Sure enough the whole media circus was out there.
I went to bed at this point but heard the next day that she actually came up and posed for pictures. She took Jamie by his hand and went out to the deck with him. He probably won’t wash it for a week :-).
