I just got back from trying to get to the shala. I drove around uprooted trees, downed wires, and tops of snapped trees for about an hour then decided to turn around while I could still recognize roads and trace my way back. The plan was to let the early risers create some heat , and then I would join in. People are practicing up there with no heat, probably bundled up and huddled close together. I am going to make myself some hot chocolate and maybe practice after I digest that.
