      Just talked to Jim on 20M cw and he indicated that satellite 
operations were doubtful today do to wx.  High winds and rain.  He said 
winds were 50 mph at times.   The forecast is for 12 inches of snow so he 
and Cori are watching the wx closely.  He said satellite operation tomorrow 
was possible wx permitting.

Depending on this afternoon's weather, I'll operate from EN17 during the 
AO27 passes that rise locally at 26/1824Z and 2002Z and hopefully on AO51 at 
26/2141Z and 2320Z.

We've got rain today and a blizzard warning starting this afternoon. We can 
hardly complain about the timing of course since we're wrapping up the 
state. We've been incredibly fortunate that every day of the seven weeks 
we've been on the road, the daily temps have been in the 60s or higher, and 
yesterday was the first day we had rain! Sounds like a good time to blow out 
of North Dakota!

A return to EN16 is possible for tomorrow, hopefully from the MN side and 
away from the blizzard!

This will conclude the focus on running grids on this trip. After we leave 
ND, we'll be taking the interstate (probably I-94 to I-65 with a three-day 
stop off in EN61) back to Florida.

I'll still operate from the grids that we hit when it's pass time, but the 
ones we'll be in aren't likely to be greatly needed. Feel free to contact me 
off list if there's something in particular you need along that route.
