We have 45*-55* temps for the next two days, but a good chance of rain for the both. Sunday looks like a wash, and temps back down around 40* & heavy rain.

So, even though the temps were around 35* today, the sun was bright, winds around 15mph and fading. I got out the full-vent on my way home from work, and gave it a little air. I didn't forget how to fly, but as the sun set, the winds calmed down almost to the point that the full-vent was having a hard time staying in the air. That was OK, 40 minutes was enough of a taste...

Kite flying is a life lesson in patience, and when the wind & weather is good, all the harsh sessions are forgotten & you just have to bask in the glory of 'the perfect day' !

Looks like this may be a good weekend.  We're doing a program for some elementary kids on Friday.  Then it's warmer with good winds for the whole weekend.

Vent over.  I can fly again!!    :D:D:D

Very good speech: life lesson in patience. The kite flier is like the sailor, you can choose the best sail for the wind but the weather always have the last word.

We can't control the wind, but we can trim the sails. :)

Sorry, wrong. I can control the wind. When I don't want it blowing, I go indoors. Presto, no wind. To have wind, I go back outside. If there is no wind outside, I go somewhere else where there is. Costs a lot sometimes, but it's doable.:D

I tend to think more in terms of physical movement + or - to "influence" the wind, or rather adjust my relative perspective on the wind itself. 

But of course, I'm a sucker for punishment. :)
