In terms of progress, I could copy and paste the previous report and have it covered.
At this point, it's kind of like forging across the frozen reaches of Siberia. "What did we see out there today?"
"A lot of snow."
"Same snow as last week?"
"No sir. Different snow."
"Looked the same."
"I promise, it was different. We're getting to new snow every day."
"Well, I guess that's something. Let's keep going, boys. We're bound to make it through all this snow eventually!"
(muffled collective cheers from the team)
(Aside) "I hope to God we're not going in circles."
