I will attempt to add some -ahem- seriousness back into this thread (if that is even possible). BTW, I always enjoy it when Fred puts up that picture of the "corn-eatin'-guy"; kinda scary looking human!
There's a windsock on the helipad near where I fly. If it is consistently lifting up to horizontal I usually won't fly. If it is flipping up like a moving finger, there is a good chance I won't fly. If it is hanging down and rarely moving, then it's fly time. I browse weatherunderground.com before I go out- it's usually correct. If there's a difference, the wind sock will tell me.
