Default Frost on the deck right now....

...but it's supposed to be nearing 50 by lunch time. Should B6-4 Field be empty, I have a box of rockets that need flying. Hope I remember how to do it.

All the Colorado club launches were cancelled this weekend. We went from a week of nice days, no snow, to rain that turned to wet snow and the sun came out and made things really wet then it started snowing again. A real icy mess. I never left the house yesterday.
Hope to see launch pics from you, and dream about launching rockets sometime in the future.

Things didn't work out the way I'd planned. Got to the field with a big box of rockets. No wind at the house, but it was fairly blustery at the field. The flags at B6-4 School were flapping from the NE wind. That just meant that some birds like the Sky Devil would be grounded for threat of trees. I hooked up the first rocket, an Estes Mach 12 wind tester. Dud. My batteries were dead. Packed back up and headed to Lowe's and was back on the field within fifteen minutes. This time the Mach 12 got in the air on a B6-4, then came oh-so-close to the trees on the hill. That would ground anything light that I had loaded with a B6-4. I wound up making six flights total before three straight duds caused me to call it a day. I think my clips are in need of cleaning. Got home and tried to get started on a blog post, but I can no longer extract stills from my cell phone. Until I can rectify that issue, I'm going to have to figure out some other way to break up the blah-blah-blah of my blog.

With your concise launch reviews, nobody would ever view them as a "blah-g" ...



(On the other hand, mine, if I did one, most likely would be.)
