Big Wind Storm in Calmp 2!

A rowdy night as we lost our dinning tent up here. Almost the whole camp 2 Was blown o0r
taken doown right now with most climbers descending to Base Camp this morning. Our large
Mountain hardware Space Station tent shredded as did 7 or 8 other teams larger tents. We
actually saw part of another teams dinning tent about 100 ft up blow past us. Serious winds
last night! We decided to stay on one more day as we can use the acclimitization. This
afternoon its changed to very nice weather with no wind and lots of sun. We plan to go down
to Base Camp tomorrow for a 3 or 4 day rest. Climbed up to about 22,000 ft. this morning and
the base of the fixed lines on Lhotse Face, our next big obsticle. Scott Woolums reporting
