Stalled Again (+0 Miles)
January 4, 2008: Migration Day 73

Photo Operation Migration

Disappointment! It is so clear and almost calm on the surface that it's hard for the team to accept a no-fly day after yesterday's jubilant flight into Georgia. Why? A weather system making its way into the region brought strong headwinds aloft. The forecast shows the system moving slowly enough to possibly keep the birds grounded for the next few days. Let us hope the forecast changes.
