Day 40

Another Weather Delay
For the 17th day of weather delays, the crew will stay where they are -- Hamilton County, Florida, 128.4 miles away from the cranes' new winter home. Winds on the ground are 10 mph in the wrong direction, and winds aloft are 30 mph. Delays are frustrating when the goal is so close!
