Today at Heartbreak Camp we awoke to much greater winds – they started up last night post dinner. At 11:30 Taylor (guide) wondered around camp and ensured all the guidelines were taut and the anchors secured. Bloody cold as well and higher wind chill on the practice route when I went out for a walk at 7 this morning.
In prep for the major storm coming in today we built a large snow wall for protection. We took down the communal tent and one of our usual tents in order to have three per tent. Anticipating 48-72 hrs fully tentbound- worth letting that sink in – fully tentbound. Weather watch has it starting sometime tonight.
