From Heather comes today's bad news: "Rain, rain rain... and yep, more rain. Standing down."

Lead pilot Joe Duff told a newspaper reporter, "We're all kind of frustrated. But we expected to run into some weather problems. Fall is notoriously unstable."

Meanwhile, the cranes get excited when the wind blows through their pen and they look eager to fly. Let's hope they get that chance tomorrow!
