Nov 21st - Weather Prediction for Wednesday

Well, at the time of writing the wind for Wednesday is looking pretty sweet - from the northwest all day and gustin' good.  This could be the last breath for this slow-dying beast, let's see if it's got a few more birds to spit our way.  LOL!!!

See you at the fence!


Nov 19th - The Birds Must Be Gone!

Absolutely perfect conditions all day today and no birds to speak of really!  Now, with only 11 days left to go in this year's Watch, I guess we really shouldn't be surprised.  Great conversation over coffee, hot chocolate, and Timbits really helped to keep us all happy and warm!  Thank you Betty!
