On the ice-Day 9


The storm woke both me and Keith up at about 5am. The tent had its pegs thrown out by the wind and the front was flapping like crazy. I opened up the door into the outer tent, it had a huge pile of snow that had covered our boots and cooker. I grabbed the spade and dashed out to put the pegs back but the wind was too strong and I couldn't get the tent to stay down. I was only outside for about 30 seconds, I couldn’t get an eye on the other two tents to see if they had blown away. I was covered from head to toe in icy cold snow so I came back in to get more warm clothes. Once geared up properly I headed back out into the gnarly cold winds! I slowly made my way around to the windy side of the tent, it was a struggle to stay on my feet!
