While the winds are not that strong at Davis compared to the other Australian stations, the dirt that the wind picks up from the Vestfold Hills area can cause some damage.
The Davis sign-post suffered some damage in the first storm of last winter. A few of the signs got knocked off and the rest looked like they had been sand blasted.
The 65th ANARE winterers carefully dismantled the signs and post and then repaired, sanded and painted each one — a real team effort.
The results speak for themselves.
