From the ice: BARREL Status Update #18

Hi folks,

 Payload 2L was launched from Halley today at 1657 UT. We now have 6 balloons in air! Hopefully we'll see some action tomorrow with the expected arrival of a CME.  We don't expect to launch from Halley again tomorrow. The weather at SANAE is also predicted to be unfavorable. We'll send an email to the ground station folks in the morning if the weather looks like it's improving. In the meantime, we're working on getting our next payloads flight-ready.
