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.

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.
