Winds aloft this morning are in the 50-60 mph range and the wterworks (rain) began shortly after 6 am. The migration will be stalled at least another day in Union County, Kentucky. The weather map above, 14 hours later, shows conditions changing; by tomorrow morning winds will be shifted around to come from the north. But what about the rain? Check back, but keep fingers crossed.

In the Classroom: Journal or Discussion

It's Sunday: No school, no questions today!

Teachers:
If your school is within 30 or 40 miles of the migration route, you are invited to contact educators and Operation Migration volunteers Gordon and Christine to ask about a classroom visit.

Journey North is pleased to feature this educational adventure presented in cooperation with the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership (WCEP).
