The South Pole was supposed to open 5 days ago however the temperature has to be no colder than -54 in order for the planes to land. This has not happened and there are roughly 150 "stuck polies" waiting around town to head south. They are predicting it might be another 5 days or so before its warm enough there for the planes to land. There has not been at the pole since the last flight out at the end of February. The 50 that spent the winter there are very anxious to get out!
