How was the fly last night boys?

I've been thinking lately that we've got to make another trip down there soon,
before it gets too hot.

i make no promises for fridays as it could be nice all week and dead on friday. it's as if the wind knows what day of the week it is and it has some grudge against us.  Tongue

but contrary to your previous visits, and the strange lack of wind, we've actually had some almost reliable breeze lately. even flying vents on a regular basis.

hope to see you down here dano.

edit: if you wait more than a couple weeks though i fear you'll miss the 'mild' weather. it's not hard to tell the heat is on it's way.

I'm "0 for 3"
The odds have to get on my side one of these times.  Wink

Nephew's graduating H.S. this year. If it's in 2 weeks there's a good chance we'll come down then.

Hope to make it. Thanks!!

... Lack of wind in Las Vegas...
http://www.wunderground.com/US/NV/020.html#REC

May is typically the windiest month of the year in Las Vegas with
average wind speed of 11.2 mph. The lack of strong upper troughs
passing through the area this past may resulted in less wind than is
typically experienced in the Mojave Desert this time of year. In Las
Vegas may 2009 will go into the record books as the least windy may
ever on record since wind record started in 1949 with an average
wind speed of 7.1 mph. The 5 least windy Mays on record in Las Vegas
based on average wind speed are...

1. 7.1 mph / 2009
2. 7.8 mph / 2006
3. 8.1 mph / 2003
4. 8.2 mph / 1952 and 2002
5. 8.3 mph / 2007
