In a message Bah (Mr.) Pariong said, "Yes, we take observations everyday about conditions of weather here for a long-term study. Winter time is from March to November in Antarctica. Nobody goes outside during the winter time. Too cold and unpredictable. There can be snow with high velocity wind anytime. During Blizzards, the wind speed is more than two hundred km per hour and sometimes with zero visibility. At our base, for two months there was no sunshine. It is called Polar Nights. On last week of July, sunrise will start for a short time and increase gradually day by day.  God has strengthened me throughout the harshest climate of Antarctica. But Antarctica is cleanest and beautiful creations of God".
