We have an excellent team of meteorologists - like Sunny Elf! - keeping track of troublesome weather systems and suggesting ways around the nasty clouds.
Also, don't forget! We have Rudolph's nose to steer us if a rogue storm catches us. I have also scheduled us some wiggle room in case of emergencies.
Leaving Puerto Rico for our quick ocean flight to St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada!
Canada already! Oh my. How the night flies!
Well, Mark, as the name suggests, Dancer has feet that just can't stop moving. It's one of the reason's he does so well on our sleigh-team - he's just go-go-go all the time.
We're just sailing into the mainland of Canada!
We are currently on route to Happy Valley-Goose Bay, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.
Ho-ho-ho I love Halifax-- but those tall ships can make for some dangerous navigating! I better stay alert.
So far so good here in NE Canada! Clear and a little nippy but we are handling it just fine!
Santa's team is heading back down south. ETA for Hog Bay, Bermuda is less than one minute.
And from Bermuda to Caracas, Venezuela where it is 77F right now! Nice!
Back down South? Changing our gear so frequently is such a hassle! Okay Santa, hand me the jacket again...
Now heading into the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil.
Brazil, the largest Portuguese-speaking country in the world. As we mentioned before, there, to say Merry Christmas, it’s “Feliz Natal!”
Correspondent? Where is my rain gauge?
I don't know! I'm drowning in winter clothing here! The hats! The reindeer boots! Ahh!
Looks like Canada's wide awake with photos to send us!
From my experience, Canada is a happening Christmas spot!
I found it! It was under a pile of carrots!
For information: Santa's sleigh is in Bolivia.
We're heading into La Paz and the mountains, which are cold again! Oh jeez. Okay, Donner, here are your antler warmers...
Correspondent, I really don't want to tell you this but, we are heading to Asunción, Paraguay next....where the temperature is 88F.
2 minutes away from Santiago, Chile and a 30 degree temperature drop!
In many Latin American countries, presents are brought by Baby Jesus – El Niño Jesus – as well as Santa Claus, or Papá Noél.
We've left Chile, and we're now on our way to Cusco, Peru. We'll be careful flying over Machu Picchu - there's some treacherous terrain there, as well as a historic site we wouldn't want to crash into!
The team is on their way to Ecuador.
While everyone's flying, I thought I'd introduce the Reindeer Reporter. He is running an interview with the workshop's top elf, so I thought I'd give him a chance to speak up.
Zipping quickly toward Bogotá, Colombia. We just left Quito, Ecuador where we had fog and visibility down to one mile!
Thanks, Mrs. Claus!
I'll just throw in a few of my questions and the elf's answers.
