August 26, 1945

Continued high wind and intermittent rain. Seems to be keeping planes away. Many disappointed. Plethoric issue tooth powder and brushes and toilet paper (now that we don’t need it!) We are fortunate to be alive as with the severe climate here and food for only a few days ahead, w could never last the winter. We have been cold this summer and have worn all our clothing to keep warm and used all our blankets at night. Can imagine how severe the winter here would be.
