While things are looking up for Operation Merry Christmas with the launch of Jingle Bell 1 there is still one very big unknown variable that could mess things up for Santa: the weather.
All over the world there are weather events to worry about. The North Pole is under siege by a blizzard. There are heavy snows in the Canadian Rockies, in the Swiss Alps, in Mongolia, and all over Alaska. Siberia is lock solid frozen in most areas.
Meanwhile, heat is a problem in South America and South Africa.
These extremes can be very hard on the reindeer. The Tracking Department is doing their best to keep Santa informed.
