It was a beautiful day today, but it was also a cold day and the wind just kept coming and coming (almost a direct headwind). It all started out OK with clear skies but as the wind picked up the ground visibility went down, and with temperatures hovering around 0° F the windchill was REALLY cold.
There's not much to report from today. No one ventured outside the tent for much more than a moment. Once, when John ventured out, the wind blew his goggles right off his head. Luckily Eric found them buried deep in a snow drift a little later.
An exciting day for the team! They started the day off as all their other days... a lazy morning at Camp Heart Break looking ahead to a day of waiting. Even though the mushers were close they weren't expected to arrive until the evening.
The team is happy to report that they weathered the storm well and now they are back to moderately calm conditions. They had to dig out their tents and supplies and the plan was to resurrect the third tent and possibly the group shelter for tonight.
