Camp 10/11: We got hit very hard. The wind continued to escalate and at one
point we started to fair for the tent even though we have double set of tent
poles all around. We took the climbing rope and tied the tent down. That
helped and made staying inside much easier.
Luckily the wind have died down somewhat. Life goes on as we listen to
music, e-books and play cards while the snow continues to fall heavily.
There are reports we may get a favourable weather window on Sunday. In the
meantime have we cut down to half rations in case this drags out. That is no
problem, especially as we are on our backs.
