opportunity survives the weekend

Some great news from Steve Squyres, via Space.com. As of this morning's radio communication with the Mars Rovers, we think the rovers rode out the worst of the storm.

Squyres said "They were both power positive over the weekend, meaning they were generating more power than they were consuming." This is great news and now that the storm is lessening, (though still quite bad,) hopefully the rovers can get back to their amazing investigations.
