SO MUCH FOR THE RAIN

Our wettish week of occasional precipitation should come to an end Thursday.  It’s been good for snow in the mountains, which now will likely last till spring, but did little more than damp down the dust out here in the desert.  No surprise there.  Wave conditions hidden up inside low cloud cover will also flatten out, leaving lots of light-and-variable and partly-to-mostly for the coming week… with some chance of the season’s first little thermals in any rogue sunny patches.  A midwinter night’s dream.

WELCOME BACK!

WELCOME BACK everyone, and here’s to a prosperous ’19 for us all!  For starters we’ll have several days of partly to mostly, with lightish winds and only a small chance of rain.  Ideal weather for midwinter training and currency practice, if you know what we mean.  And think of this: every single day for the next five months will feature a longer afternoon.  Quite a trend, wouldn’t you say?

SEE YOU SOON

WINTER SOLSTICE

We’ll be gone this week and the next (over the desert and through the woods to Grandma’s house), coming back on Friday, January 11. This is among other things the week of winter solstice, and next time we meet, sunrise and sunset will be all of eleven minutes further apart than they are now. Again, we thank all our staff and friends, volunteers, contributors, and of course regular flyers, for another year of everything.

SEE YOU IN JANUARY!

HI ALL!

This will be our last week of operations for 2018. Light winds and balmy is the forecast for Saturday and Sunday, with a beautiful dusting of new snow on the mountains that will likely stay from now till spring.
We thank all our staff and friends, volunteers, contributors, and of course regular flyers, for another year of everything. It is a team sport after all, and you’re who make us who we are.
All the best of Festivus to ye (or whichever holiday’s your choice), we’ll be back on Friday, January 11 to do it again. And guess what? By then the days will be, well, measurably longer than they are now…
