Ok, so maybe we
ARE certifiable. Still though, we had fun and we can say
we DID IT!
LOL No seriously,
we should be comitted...
On our (what is
this, the 6th?) CMASS Winter Follies, we had about 20 folks
show up. The forecast originally called for temps in the
mid-40's with a slight chance of rain. By launch time,
the forecast had been downgraded to temps in the low 30's and
up to an inch of snow....
Never got warmer
than about 28 and I had an inch of snow on my table by the
time I was done setting them up! Cold, wet and heavy
snow. A few times I lost sight of the tree line it was
coming in so heavy. Big fat, succulent snow flakes
too... I would say that we got about 25 launches in
before folks began saying "what the heck are we
DOING!??!" and we closed up shop about noon time, after
about 2 hours of flying.
The trip back to
NH was daunting, with traffic moving at a snails pace up RT
495 and 3, but I got home safe and downed a large, hot bowl of
corn chowder! yum!
Looking forward to
our next launch, in warmer weather!
Enjoy the photo
album and be sure to come out to the next launch!
