I'm not worried about being stupersticious, but It just rained an inch and a half in one hour.
The wind was so strong it blew down a 4' diameter oak, in the backyard.
I think I'm grounded

Think if the world used a different dating system. Would the day that the other system stated which was supposed to be the 13th of Friday still have any particular relevance? Because, of course, the only reason the number 13 is looked upon is as it comes from centuries of superstition. Some food for thought. I myself reduce superstitious dates and numbers to merely the content of the most recent "Chain Mail E-mail" letter I have received.

Windy here, too.

Flew until it started to thunder. Got one flight in with my S&B Ta-152 (sorry, I realize this ISN'T the foamies section) and half a flight in with my Combat Wings XE before weather closed in on me. Had a BLAST!!!

Of course I'll fly!

Just spent about an hour doing close air support for the neighborhood watch with my mini-IFO... I especially enjoy racing cars down the street (from a safe distance, of course). They always seem to win, though...

I flew my Slow Stick today for the firs time, Friday the 13th didnt hurt anything (except 2 broken props, but that would have happened anyway)
