Default I'm not going to see any of this in houston am I?

This is what I woke up to this morning, more to come the next 2 days. I flew in almost perfect conditions yesterday.
Indiana weather, If you dont like it wait a few hours[:@]
I cant wait to head south!

I looked out my office window today around 10am and saw the fattest snow flakes Ive ever seen. I mean these things were bigger than golf balls....but fortunately they didnt stick.

Yeah me to I looked out this morning and it was a beautiful day +12 Deg a light dusting of snow on top of what was already there. Made a trip to go to the ice carving championships (outdoors BTW) These are amazing !!! some of them two stories tall and detail you would not believe! then went out flying the E-Sledge twice and got to work. All the while thinking I will be missing Houston.

It sucks in Wisconsin too. It's cold and windy. Temperatures are in the low 40s during daylight and high 20s at night. If the wind would die down, I'd be flying, but windchill is a booger!

Lately, it also can't decide if it should rain or snow for the past couple of storms. It's loads of fun to get a couple of inches of rain (like all day kinda' rain), while the ground is still frozen. There is basically no run off. Then the temperature drops, snow starts, and everything freezes. We end up with a nice shinny ice coating over everything.

Isn't it spring yet?[:@]

Grew up in Buffalo, NY. Moved to Tex 20 years ago to get away from the stuff, and haven't seen it since.......I like it this way. Weatherdude says weekend will be gorgeous and the flying will be great.

That's right, P/C with highs near 80 all weekend long.[8D]
Y'all bring shorts and short sleeve shirts.

Odd... I've never ever seen snow before. Maybe you guys must start organising the pro bro events here by me.

That's a little far for me to drive...

I'll key South Africa into mapquest.com and see if I can get some directions anyway.

I wish I was going with you guys to Houston. I'm so sick and tired of being cold. I flew all day Sunday in near 50 degree weather, a bit windy, then it snowed all day Monday and Tuesday. March in Nebraska is such a tease. 65 one day, 30 and snow the next. Heck, sometimes in the same day.

Sorry, www.mapquest.com only knows how to find the USA and Europe.

Then there's that whole crossing an ocean and half the planet thing.

I guess I'll miss the South Africa Pro Bro event...

Hehehe...I'm looking forward to a very hot weekend, remember it's summer here. We're camping at the field. Draught machine, plenty of tents, food and lots of flying. I'll have one on you guys. Would have rather been there with the bros though.

I just saw on weather.com that its only going to be a high of 69 on Sunday.....Ohhhhh no....I better bring my winter coat
well this is from weather.com as I am writing this :

Friday: P/C 80/57 Wind 9mph Rain 10%
Saturday: P/C 75/57 Wind 7 mph Rain 10%
Sunday: P/C 69/59 Wind 7 mph Rain 10%

at our local TV station they predicted all weekend with awesome weather and temperatures close or in the low 80's. No rain in the forecast.
Well, both forecast sure look good nuff to me.
Hope to see a bunch of you guys down here.

And video. If you don't have the ability to digitize it and put it on the web I'll do it if you mail me the tapes.
