It Certainly Is An Adventure!

Wind is 35 mph - with gusting to 40 mph
sustained > 25 mph
drifted 5 miles south since going to bed
we have a sustained drift of 0.5 mph mainly to the east/southeast
there has been drifting snow that has buried all of our sleds, skiis and started to bury the tent.
overall too dangerous for us to venture out - visibility very poor, so can't wander off or you wouldn't find camp again
89.11 degrees and moving away from the pole
we are hunkered down and waiting it out - nothing else that can be done -
living arrangements are tight but we are making it work
we may go out later if things settle down
Happy Birthday to Trudy, Stella and John

p.s. Can't thank everyone enough for the comments - they bring warmth and humour to us everynight as we do the dinner prep!!

A windy day
