J-7: station still not operational

According to the Antarctic Station website, the crew that needs to open the station and make it operational for the coming field season is still stuck in Cape Town. They were supposed to arrive in Antarctica on 6 November, but bad weather prevents them to leave South Africa:

Such delays may have consequences for the upcoming field work, although we hope for the best. We are the first team to arrive (21 November) this season and rely quite heavily on logistics involving drilling, GPS deployment and radar. If the preparations are not going according to plan, delays are to be expected.
