The winds aloft are finally from the north, but too wild for the cranes and planes. It's been nine days on the ground in Piatt County, Illinois, but the winds are swinging around. Hopes are rising. Will weather allow them to depart tomorrow? Everybody is ready and waiting! Stay tuned.

A Contest! You can help the team win a grant for $25,000 to continue helping the cranes! Visit the Pepsi Refresh Challenge website to vote for Operation Migration today. You can vote every day until Dec. 31.
