October 11, 2006: Migration Day 7
flight, the team was dismayed
to awaken to 46°F,
winds blowing 10 to 15 mph out of the west, and rain. No flying
today! Worse news: The rain may turn into snow showers by
afternoon. Do you think they're doomed to
another string of delays? So far, what distance has the migration
day for the ultralight planes, but the birds are built to cope.
Sometimes the team lets the birds out of their travel pen for
some exercise, as in today's photo from Marie.
Journal Question: Rain,
temperature, or winds: which is likely the biggest factor
in today's no-fly decision? See Pilot's
Checklist: Weather or Not?) What things do you do that are affected by the
day's weather? When have you been disappointed to change plans
to the weather?
