No Go. Same Old Nemesis (+0 Miles)
January 2, 2010: Migration Day 71

"Once again, although out of the right direction, the very strong winds are our nemesis this morning," came the word from Liz at Operation Migration. On the ground those winds gusted up to 18 mph. They were even faster (30 to 50 mph) aloft. No choice: Today will be Down Day #8 in Franklin County, Alabama. (The December holiday break days are not counted in this down-day total.) Why is nemesis a good word choice?
