Ho conosciuto Spiro molti anni fa. Non ho mai arrampicato con lui ma sono stato membro volontario del Corpo Soccorso Alpino di cui Spiro era il capo a Trieste. Abbiamo partecipato assieme alla tragedia del Vajont.E' un altro dei miei amici che se ne va, dopo Gianni Sferco, morto nelle Dolomiti nel 1967 e Bruno Crepaz, scomparso sul Langtang Lirung nel 1982. Ma io spero di rivederli. Come ha scritto Georges Bernanos, "Il n'y a pas un royaume des vivants et un royaume des morts. Il n'y a que un royaume de Dieu et nous y sommes dedans, vivants ou morts".

When things get bad, Italians forget their divisions. Three hundred trained rescuers have left Milano and other Lombardy towns armed with anti-snow equipment from Linate and Malpensa airports and rescue helicopters. The main task is that of opening mountain roads to ambulances and trucks loaded with food.

It looks like an extreme event caused by global warming. 2016 was the warmest year on record according to NASA.

A quake can start avalanches if it coincides with a snowfall. This has happened in the Langtang valley in the Himalaya and probably happened also in Abruzzo. The first rescuers arrived on skis at 4 AM, since cars and trucks were blocked at 9 km and helicopters could not fly at night in a snowstorm. It looks like there are no other survivors except the first two who had exited from the hotel to smoke a cigarette and repaired in their car.

Hotel Rigopiano in Comune Farindola, Pescara Province, hit by a snowslide which shifted it by 10 meters, according to rescuers. Two people saved, other 28 missing. The hotel is under the Gran Sasso Mountain. I am wondering about the possible effects of the seismic shocks in the delicate instrumentation of the Gran Sasso National Laboratories looking for dark matter (none found so far in the LUX expertiment).

Tre scosse sismiche in Abruzzo dalle 10.26 alle 11.15, magnitudo 5.4,5.1 e 5.6. La situazione e' peggiorata da una fitta nevicata, fino a 2 metri di neve. Molti abitanti vorrebbero fuggire dalle case ma le strade sono inagibili e manca l'elettricita'. Si attende l'intervento dell'esercito. Ad Amatrice e' crollato il campanile di Sant'Agostino, che era stato lesionato dal terremoto del 24 agosto.

Nadia Fanchini has a broken arm and will probably miss the World Championship next month. Lindsey is thirteenth in a race where standings changed very frequently, see the unexpected first place of Christine Scheyer and the third place of American Jacqueline Wiles.
