Yep. A bit of snow on the ground and flurries all around—AND unfavorable winds. The weather is keeping them stuck at Stopover #2 in Juneau County, WI for another day or two.

Meanwhile, the team and birds still need to eat and keep everything in readiness. It all costs money, and every penny helps.
