50th day (22 May 1917)

It rained cats and dogs last night again and the water came down the hatchway and flooded out some of the cabins.  There is something almost uncanny in the regularity of the weather – dull mornings – clear afternoons – cloudless hazy sky in the evening with distant lightening in East – then clouds over and rains about midnight.  Have seen no birds for days.
