Title: Chico today?

Plan was to get some UN video but of course it is windy (and a bit chilly).  So ... anyone still planning on getting out to fly?

Wind has been blowing 30 to 40 over here the last few hours. It may be calming down though. Its only blowing 25 to 35 now.

Currently 14 with gusts to 20 according to the airport weather station.  Gusts were up to 30 overnight. 

Might be a good day for some single lines and dragging around some tails.

A bit windy it is !!!

I'm gonna ' give it a try with some small stuff and long tails.
Wind chill factor will decide if I make a day of it though....... :-[

I'm planning around noonish after I do some end of the week/month stuff at work.

See you then ??

Doesn't look like we'll make it today. Orland Christmas Craft Faire (they have the best in the area over there) gotta' stimulate the economy ya' know ... like we haven't already  :D

Probably have to decide on a Tree today too since next weekend is a trip to Sierraville for a soak in the Hot Springs and another Christmas Faire. They feed you and get you drunk up there, free booze and snacks at all the shops  8)  they mix up some unique shooters, can't recall which was my favorite though so I guess I'll have to try them all again  ;)

We'll try and drive by at some point to see what's up

Noon it is then.  I'll double up on the thermals.  Might be able to drag Ted out too.   Of course Chris is sound asleep so if for no other reason I should get out of the house to keep from waking her.
