Let it snow!

It’s December in Iringa, Tanzania.  You wake up and check the weather… 77 degrees with a chance of thunderstorms.  It is the rainy season.  Then a flatbed truck loaded with a shipping container pulls up to the HALI office to make a delivery, and a team of five guys start unloading a wooden export shipping crate.  What lovely holiday surprise is this?

Well dear readers, it could only be our new snow machine, a state of the art Stirling Cryogenics liquid nitrogen generating plant.  It would’ve been there by Christmas but Santa’s sleigh was delayed for customs inspection in Dar so he contracted a flat-bed to deliver the crate up the TanZam highway instead.

We’ve been waiting patiently for months for this generator, so don’t be surprised if you walk by the HALI office this week for a visit and see a snow globe blanketing our beautiful and custom-built LN2 outbuilding.

Plant installation and training are the next steps, that’s when the HALI team will nominate our own Mr. Freeze to maintain and operate the plant.  Who will it be?  Zika, Muhiddin, Goodluck, Erasto?  Stay tuned, same bat-time, same bat-channel (and hang on to your rice!)...
