Delta V Heavy Launch at 11:36 today

We're launching a Delta V heavy carrying a new GPS in to medium earth orbit just after 11:30 this morning. The launch window is a bit under 20 minutes so they have very little time to fix any anomalies that may happen. The Delta series has an outstanding record of operation, so I
expect it to go without a hitch. Actually, I need it to do so, because until it does, we're in a "no-dig" mode, leaving me diddling around doing stupid little filler shit until that bird flies, so GO Delta!

There's a very low marine layer right over the beach, so with the cloud deck and all, we won't see or hear much this go around, which is fine so long as they fly today. Usually we have a great view from the shop, which is about fifteen miles or so in a straight line from the pad.
