Had to Post

(1/2) > >>

Had to let the dog out ..it's about 2:30 a.m. Michigan time.   Been windy past week and no flying.  Wind right now 53mph... Everything is blowing outside... Just checked wind meter on line... Crazy guess my new Ul stays in the bag... and no toy helicopter flying either...Vertigo out !!!!  The Temp. is 46 degree's F ...  They say in the next 12 hrs temp will drop to 20 degree's  .... I need to fly ,,, :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

Was so hard not to take my micron out at 2am... I havent flown since october due to a torn ligament in my ankle. Cast came off a few weeks ago and phys therapy has me confident enough to wander around a field again.

Only thing stopping me was i think all the crazy micron buzzing would get the fire department called, because someone thought a power line was down.  :D

I got out to fly yesterday after work when it was 45 degrees and 15 mph. The jazz got to fly a bit and in the lower wind the zephyr flew.  the winds were very stormy and irregular.  We went to mishawaka last night and the street lights were horizontal!!!  this morning 15 degrees with lake effect snow warnings.

First rule of KiteClub:
  no flying when the Wind speed is higher than the Temperature!

example:  46degrees/50mph wind= no flying
                8degrees/10mph wind= no flying

Where's your sense of adventure? This is when you get the power kites out! Extra layers for warmth mean extra padding for dragging.

Wimpy, Wimpy, Wimpy...  :D ;D :D

That's what winter clothing is for...

Mea Culpa, I take it all back, I take it all back...
Walked out on the lake to look for a lens hood I lost yesterday and, thought H%$* no I wouldn't be out here flying today... 7 degrees with 15 mph wind. The ice sure was nice lookin' though... layers and layers of cracks and bubbles from the recent rain, thaw, freeze cycles.
