Calm before the storm

 Jenni (above) had an "awesome" flight with Eddie in the Twin Astir on Wednesday.
Both Bob and Pat (below) took time out from their travels to experience the thrill of gliding.

We woke up to winds strong enough to blow a dog off its' chain!! Casualties included the shed (above) as well as a few trees uprooted. Top temperature today was a record 30 degrees! The mercury dropped rapidly this afternoon though.
