I did turn quite mild here but the wind and dampness kept me home so I stayed busy in the shop! Now I got a lot of planes to fly, I just need the weather to co-operate!

Here in Brantford the rain and hail stopped before noon. The hazy bright sky dried the field by 1:00 and Hank and I were flyin'. By late afternoon the wind settled to a calm whisper. Chuck did some glider towing (Don's) with his Tree Hopper. He's in love with that plane. You missed the bomb drops. I had everybody running for cover.

See you at work.

I'm hoping for heavy winds all week. It'll do wonders drying out the field

It was windy, cold & rainy in the Ottawa Valley, so I used my best waterproof SPAD & went flying anyway -- nearly froze my fingers off, but all of the pieces came home still glued together. more rain today, but much warmer.
