the payload is back on the rail! so we are back in business. it was turned on and checked once on the rail and all seems good. however, a large snowstorm (6-12" of snow tomorrow, unusual for this area) is barreling down upon us, so, the launchers were lowered and the shelters pulled over them, and we will stand down for saturday evening while the snow comes through. in all my time here i cannot remember having to do this before (lower the rails for snow/wind).
so, we will hunker down and make soup tomorrow, and be back counting sunday night.
