[b]TMA-22 crew dons parkas for snowy ride to pad[/b]
Soyuz TMA-22 commander Anton Shkaplerov, NASA flight engineer Dan Burbank and Roscosmos' Anatoly Ivanishin departed their crew quarters for the launch pad Sunday evening (Monday morning local time), where they are scheduled to lift off for the International Space Station at 10:14 p.m. CST (0414 GMT Nov. 14).
Due to the weather, the trio had to don special overcoats.
"On the way to the pad," wrote backup crew member Joe Acaba on Twitter. "Snow is falling. First time [a] crew has had to wear these overcoats/parkas. All is go so far."
