Migration Target Day + 4

Waiting Patiently
Would you rather be the pilot or one of the cranes? Would you rather be a crane near the ultralight or one further back?

"Ho-hum" says Heather Ray while patiently waiting for better flying conditions. Today's winds were 10 knots from the west--too strong for flying. That's even worse than yesterday's "trashy" winds!


Try This! Journaling Question
  • Are you feeling impatient waiting for the migration to begin? Imagine how impatient the WCEP team is feeling! Do you think the cranes are impatient, too? Why or why not?
