Bummer....hope your insurance will cover that!  Wishing you no winds or at least gentle breezes!

OK,  I was joking, a bit, about the wind, but enough is enough! 

It's been quite windy for several days but In the middle of the night we were jolted awake by a gust of wind that shook the house like an earthquake. Surveying the back yard in the morning we found that our patio canopy had burst.  That rip stop canopy is supposed to handle gusts up to 50 miles an hour. 

Not free flight weather for sure! Shocked

The problem I've had lately is trying to go flying.  Usually, I go to a regular Sunday morning flying session at the "Grassy Knoll" (Sepulveda Basin Recreation Area), but this winter we had rain.  Thankfully, the long California drought is over.  There were some good flying weather Sundays but social engagements and a few too late Saturday nights (At my age you don't tell your wife you have to go flying in the morning when she wants to stay up late on a Saturday night!)  interfered.  Now we have winds.  (As I type this 30 miles per hour with gusts to 50.)

Is it going to be a good flying day?  Just check the tree.  Every morning, when I go out to pick up the newspaper, (Yes, I still read the newspaper.) I look to the west and check the top of my neighbor's palm tree.  If the palm fronds are not moving it's worth driving to the Basin for some flying.  If the palm fronds are moving...Building day!
