Andrew Yasso called June 24th at 1:11pm PST with the following dispatch: Happy Sunday AAI. This was originally a day designed for rest we've managed to do pretty much that. The weather report's starting to come to fruition, we're getting some weather. We're happy we're at fourteen. (lots of interference) -- So really we're just getting fancy here with our cooking... (more interference than cut off).

Paul - Sending massive love & positive energy your way every waking moment, asking God to channel it your way to help keep you strong & focused up there. PLEASE STAY WELL HYDRATED!!!

So wonderful to hear your voice, Super P, even if phone cuts off abruptly. Miss & worry about you, though I know you're ok & doing what you love. Even super heroes get pretty worked in less than optimum operating environments. WISH I WERE THERE!!!!

So, tomorrow, Tuesday, looks pretty awful with a foot of snow, below zero temps, and high winds expected at 17,000 & above. Sounds like Farkas and Team 7 froze a bit - they're in the thick of it for sure. Probably best for you all to continue to stay put at least until Wednesday, unfortunately.

Doubt you'll get this message any time soon with transmissions cutting off abruptly, but if you do, please know that I so appreciate your calls, can't wait to hear from you again, and keep you in prayer constantly. Rest well, stay strong, & be safe. Yours, Jeanne
