Launch Weather Update

After checking weather sites and local forecasts, and checking with a few of us who have been through "Iffy" weather before, Ralph has bitten the bullet and decided to go ahead with this weekends launch. (his computer is in several pieces on the floor right now)

As it is now projected, There is a chance of scattered light rain, not really showers, nothing that heavy or concentrated during the day, with some scattered sunshine peaking through the overcast. The temps are to be in the
mid 60's, so that will be good, and not windy. Any heavy rain is not to come until Saturday evening or night into the morning hours of Sunday, with a break until later Sunday on through Monday.

So we plan on a reasonable to good day on Saturday and if any bad
projections of bad or worse weather for Sunday comes we can make a weather decision at the site.

With the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend, next weekend, we just didn't
think it workout any better to move the launch, it could always be even worse weather next weekend anyway. We know what we have this weekend.

OK, so I hope to see most of you out there and lets have a nice time
putting smoke trails into the sky.

LAST Point, Due to changes in circumstances out at the farm, most probably the house will not be available for restroom use. So, we have to make a nature run to the convince store 2 miles away, if so, yell out if anybody needs a ride.

Take care,
