A Rainy End To Our Trip

Touring the sites in Moscow tomorrow probably will be cold and damp. The temperature was about 50 degrees when we left Nizhny this morning, and it's expected to dip as low as 41 tonight. The high for tomorrow is not supposed to top 60 ... and the forecast calls for rain and wind.

We're hoping for occasional breaks in the weather for photo ops. Our flight doesn't leave until 5 p.m. on Saturday, so if we don't get any photos tomorrow from Moscow, maybe we'll have another chance Saturday morning. I sure will be bummed if I come all the way to Russia and can't get any nice photos of Moscow. One thing working in our advantage is our location. Moscow is so far to the north on the globe that daylight starts between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. and continues until 10 p.m. or after. So maybe we can find a good weather window in there somewhere.

In any case, we've had great weather most of the time here, so I am thankful for that.

Another note: Heard today that they had a major computer malfunction at Heathrow airport in London, and the air-traffic controllers had to direct the planes "manually," whatever that means. It caused major delays at Heathrow. So Kimberly, if you're meeting us at the airport, you might want to check our arrival time before you leave the house.
