The North Pole Navy is on the move…and they are congregating in the far North Atlantic. More details coming soon…
Santa is expressing great satisfaction with the job done by trackers in Sector 1 this Christmas Eve. His flight has been very smooth and he gives them all the credit.
The long wait is over: Santa has launched from the North Pole, fighting severe headwinds and a blinding blizzard.
He is presently flying high above the weather but still relatively low at 20,000 feet. Santa is headed south, of course, but is yet to set his course for destination. He continues to be in communication with the North Pole.
Traditionally it is several hours after Santa launches before we receive word of his first visits in the South Pacific. We peg it between 2 and 5 hours from now.
Please stand by.
Santa has issued his first bedtime warning of his flight — for Samoa.
This is just the first of many bedtime warnings to come.
And this one feels a little early.
Maybe Santa knows something we don’t.
Santa will be leaving the North Pole in a blinding blizzard within the next few minutes.
It is not the first time Santa has left under these conditions.
Santa’s launch is customarily a spectator event but not tonight. We cannot even count on television coverage of it because there is so much blinding, swirling snow in the air.
The “launch”, as we like to call it, will start from a dead stand still position inside Santa’s Stables. The doors will then be swung open and Santa will make a made dash straight into the wind.
Ground crews are doing all they can to give him a level, snow-filled runway for him. Still it could take a little bit more than usual for him to get up to speed.
Once Santa is airborne he will quickly rise above the storm and get to work.
So while conditions look terrible, there are not the end of the world. Santa can handle it.
