AGAIN?

Last week was one of our better ones this season, soaring-wise.  Peter Kovari finally got out of town, reaching that well known hotspot of Gabbs, and – stop the presses – Bradley Baum did so too, logging his very first diamond distance flight.  (Judging from what Bradley said afterward, it may not be his last!)   On the same day, Richard Smolinski soared about 275 miles to another hotspot, Mina, NV.

This coming week will be similar, with more light westerlies and thermals maybe not quite so high.

SEE YOU SOON!

THUMBS UP

Yes, it’s been ‘soarable’ every day for a long time now, like every summer, but this season has delivered little of the TERRIFIC thermal conditions our area is known for — so far.  The coming weekend might make up for some of that, with a warming trend and light westerlies generating nearly perfect soaring conditions each day of the ‘foreseeable’ future.

SEE YOU SOON!

TIME FOR SOME LEMONADE

This recent period of 105 degrees every afternoon may come to an end soon.  It’ll be somewhat less humid over the weekend too, with or without continued smoke from the many fires upwind.  We’ve been very lucky over the years at Crystal, in not losing our beautiful skyline to one burn or another.  Let’s pray that continues!

AS YOU WAS

Weather over the coming days will remain much like last week, only not quite as hot, with winds staying light except for some thermal powered gustiness during mid- to late afternoons.  The stuffy humidity will be low enough that even the highest thermals may spawn no cumulus at all…

SEE YOU SOON!
