Hey everyone this is JJ and Solveig with the Mexico team here on Ixta.  First we do want to let everyone know that everyone here on the team is safe and sound and second, we haven’t heard any news but we hope that everyone in Acapulco and the coast land of Mexico is ok with that hurricane.  Here on Ixta at High Camp at 14,700’, we have received the inland storm, I believe the remnants of what happened with that hurricane.  We received over a foot of snow last night, heavy winds and no visibility.  The winds have died down, it is not snowing any more.  We still don’t have good visibility.  But everyone is still in good spirits.  Needless to say, the mountain certainly said no to us for going to the top today but this is a day that is pretty obvious that the mountains are to be enjoyed and not conquered.  We are making the best of it, everyone is in great spirits, having fun and smiling.  Now our focus is packing up and getting down off of Ixta and into Puebla. Everyone says hello on the team and thanks for following along.  We will definitely show you some of the sites and sounds from Puebla, Mexico and maybe some of what it looked like yesterday getting up to high camp.  Everyone is doing great and we will touch base soon.  Our next objective is Orizaba and we are definitely keeping our fingers crossed for better weather.  Take care everyone.  Bye.
