snow...Soon after we arrived at ABC yesterday it began
raining. The rain soon turned to snow and we woke to 8
cm of new snow on the ground & over 35 cm at Camp I. I
can only imagine how difficult and dangerous it would
have been on the face had we been up at 7,800 meters,
with no tent, sleeping bags and food and fuel for only 2
days. Chomolungma was indeed watching out for us!

Now, we wait for good weather
and eat the last of our more appetizing food. Stephen
