Not yet critical but…

The situation for both Catalans is not yet critical but it certainly gives them cause for concern.
8th day in the tent : this sums up well the situation.
Outside the tent nothing changes (heavy winds, snow storms continue) but the thickness of the snow which is piling up in the awning.
Bosch writes on 10 Novermber : "We are screwed, no progress, nothing... you can't imagine what's going on outside our tent, it's worse than before... We have not been able to even go outside as there was so much snow in the awning... area that we had to use our shovel. It is now, eight days so far stuck in here and our situation is critical... All sorts of doubts are comencing to appear. We hope to see a change in the weather conditions soon, otherwise it is going to be very difficult to carry on with our project. Right now, what we do know, is that we will not be back home for Christmas, even if the weather conditions improve. We suppose that it's part of the price to pay, of course, very high, and annoys us big time. ..."
