Northern Virginia - It's 29 degrees right now and the wind is blowing a good 25mph with gusts. I think flying season is officially over for me. I was hoping to get the MUS in the air just once before this but now I get to wait for spring.

Actually, I will be down there during Christmas (west coast side around Port Charlotte). Can't bring the planes though. Oh well.

North-western corner of SC (over by Clemson University). I moved here from the Philly area of PA and I'm lovin' the weather. We fly all year 'round. It'll be in the mid 50's today - a tad below normal but sunny and calm.

I work from home and have 25 acres. That gives me a change to go out and fly a pack or two to break the tension of the day - can't do that with wet fuel! Did I mention that my farm borders a small lake for flying off water?

I fly, therefore I crash.

mid 40's here in the Tidewater region of Virginia. Flew yesterday in mild winds and mostly cloudy.

Flyable but wishing spring was here already!

I have started taking my control line kites to the field. If it is too windy to fly at least we can have some fun flying the kites - the more wind the better!

Thumbs down Winter Ice Storm

Saint Louis, MO (Affton)
Winter storm, the electric power has been off at my residence in Affton since 11:00 PM Thursday. It was an ice storm & brought the tree limbs and power lines down in the Mo.- Ill. region, leaving hundreds of thousands of people helpless & freezing. Most of the ice has melted & some power has been restored.

Tacoma, WA. Forecast for tomorrow is mostly cloudy, 10% chance of precip, high of 44 degrees, winds light and variable... That is better than usual for this winter so far, and I plan to get out there in the morning and fly before work... I also got in a little flying last Sat morning...

Overall, it has been pretty rainy and windy and cold here, and last month I was thinking flying was pretty much over, but actually a little window comes around every week or so if I'm watching for it. So the flying is a lot less than I'd like, but there is still some to be had -- enough to keep the passion alive 'til next spring...

~~~~~~~~~~ let's go carve some air ~~~~~~~~~~

Miserable!

It's easy to be wise. Just think of something stupid to say and then don't say it.
