PREDICTING Jan.14,2012 They say, “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch,” so, while we are more optimistic about our chances for a flight tomorrow than we were this morning….we’re resisting counting. The surface winds are forecast to be WSW, but very, very light. The question is will a headwind…even a light one be enough to discourage the young cranes, especially as shortly after take off the trikes need to get them to climb quickly to get over a ridge just to the south of us. Aloft, the winds for the morning are more favorable than they were today as they have dropped down but are still out of the right direction. Unless there is a drastic change for the worse, I’ll be at the departure flyover location in the morning – with my fingers crossed. Hope to see y’all there!!
