    Minnesota Winter

    What a day in December, 36 degrees, no snow and 5mph wind. First time I have flowen with out skies this late in December. Trimed out two new R-200s, if it stays like this will have to get out the water skis.

    RE: Minnesota Winter

    LOOKIN GOOD, Randy! Those are some nice looking airplanes.

    Of course, I must mention that it was 65 deg and sunny today here in Ft Worth..... I got a lot of flying in and it was even warm enough that the epoxy set up on the new wing. Then again, I gotta come back up to MSP next week to go to work, so I appreciate that it's not -20... :-)

    RE: Minnesota Winter

    Even with the flurries, if I had something ready I'd be at the field drinking a beer instead of drinking one in front of the computer.. I'm sure glad I didn't by a new snowmobile this year...

    RE: Minnesota Winter

    My weather forecast:

    Today: Sunny and very windy. High 53F. Winds NW at 35 to 50 mph. Winds could occasionally gust over 60 mph.
    Yeah, we like our wind speeds to be a bigger number than the temperatures.
