Scott's Last Expedition

Thursday, May 25th 1911

It has been blowing from south with heavy gusts and snow, temperature extraordinarily high, -6º. This has been a heavy gale. The weather conditions are certainly very interesting; Simpson has again called attention to the wind in February, March, and April at Cape Evans – the record shows an extraordinary large percentage of gales. It is quite certain that we scarcely got a fraction of the wind on the Barrier and doubtful if we got as much at Hut Point.
