    They were delayed by weather.

    I was very glad to see them finally launched. They use the satellite control network I work for. Each day they were delayed meant their orbits had to be recomputed, and their supports rescheduled and deconflicted against the rest of the satellites our network supports. Today's the first day off I've had in two weeks (and that was the weekend before taxes were due).
