Our traverse to the lake has been delayed a day due to less than ideal weather moving in last night. The winds picked up (40-45 knots for awhile) with blowing snow which has resulted in very flat light and less than ideal weather for the trip.

"The last two days have been pretty nice weather-wise, and very productive."

"The weather improved today with sunshine and light winds greeting us this morning, a nice change of pace from the constant pounding we have had the last few days."

"We are still recovering from the damaging winds that trashed the camp, but as soon as things calm down we will get busy and pull it all back together."
