And You Thought Nebraska Was Windy...

May 3, 2013

The weather at Base Camp and above has been so windy that the expedition had to abort plans to make another rotation to the higher elevations.  Robert has these comments from Everest Tibet Base Camp.

"The weather here at BC is super windy day and night. Phil (Altitude Junkies expedition leader) says he has never seen it like this.  It makes being outside quite miserable. The cold goes right through you.  I huddle inside one of the tents and read, do puzzles and watch movies, along with some conversation with other team members.  Eventually we run out of things to say and do and retire to our individual tents. I am sleeping and eating well.  My sleeping bag is warm so I am comfortable at night."
