By the start of Albert Leichtfried and Benedikt Purner's trip to Iceland, it seems like all their effort was for nothing. A very strong and warm storm from the southwest brought a heatwave that increased the temperature more than 10 degrees, melting the ice formations. Luckily, the storm disappeared after a day and most of the ice remained intact. The wind turned north, and Iceland was freezing again. With a smile on their face, they resumed their search for ice.
