Our launch today has been cancelled. We're a bit bummed, since it's a further delay, but surface winds were just too strong. At the surface it was 5-7 knots and above that a bit, it was 11-12 knots. Up a few hundred feet the winds pick up to 20-30 knots, but that's fine since that only affects our balloon once it's been let go of.
When we know more about when the next launch may be, we'll let you all know. I'll post a few photos of today's exercise later, too.
