Just got off the phone with Melis. They have a great runway built and Larry was teaching a snow cave class. They have plenty of fuel and food and spirits were high. There are a lot worse places to be stuck than the beautiful Eldridge Glacier, like Newark, NJ airport! As of now the weather is improving, but it is still socked in the mountains. I talked to someone in Palmer and they said it was clear down there which is where most of our weather comes from. Hopefully the good weather is pushing the bad out and they will get picked up soon. We have orange juice, watermelon and cookies waiting for them.
