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.
