It's another day of wrong-ways winds. From the Operation Migration office in Canada, Liz sums it up:

The bad news: Today is the 8th day of going nowhere, doubling 2006's record four days we were stuck at this stopover.
The good news: From the look of the aviation weather charts, the wind currents appear to be shifting, and from Monday on, we could have a chance of several consecutive days for flying!

In the Classroom

  • Today's Journal Question:
    Imagine you are making a "Boredom Box" to send the team. It's filled with fun things for them to do after their chores are done. What would you put in the box?
