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

Had to work today and came home to heavy fog and drizzel. Hope to fly tomorrow. Had the plane in the car.

Horrible Test Pilot
It blew and rained here too, but I still got 2 flights with some photography.

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.

I ain't got it!!!
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!!!

Why yes, I DO work for GP

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)
