We are dismayed to bring you the same old news. Today is migration day 12 — and Down Day 9 in Green Lake County, WI. Today's delay ties the record set in 2007 for un-flyable days between migration stopovers #1 and #2. The weather is in charge; see today's bonus question for more on that topic. Hang in there. The weather WILL change!
