Who's got Flying Weather?

Looks like my flying weather is going to be canceled for today.
We got 2-5 inches of new snow coming.
Looks more like i will be plowing snow unless i fly the Snow Scooter.Ha

If you can withstand the -25*C it would be good. I don't have problems with wind that much its more the snow and cold 9 months of the year.

It's 10mph here today but there is a swap meet/fly-in at a local field here tomorrow and usairnet says 28mph most of the day. http://www.usairnet.com/cgi-bin/laun...=KODO&state=TX

This will be my first foray into club events so I hope people will still show up.

That sounds like thermals going off.

Was nice this morning right at freezing, 2" of fresh wet snow, mist, but minimal wind. Flew the Beaver w floats off the snow. Still working on trim & balance. But I learned some things today that I need to change.
