      6 years ago, it was quite a different story. Memories of Spring 2012...
      Team JR Air ............You can't buy happiness. But, you can buy a sailplane and that's pretty darn close.

        Looks like the forecast is calling for a foot of snow on Wednesday. I only imagine some of the snow drafts on the hilltop road could be somewhat deep. Which sucks because they are calling for good northwest wind also!

                  Peter G arrived at my house this afternoon and did an airframe inspection on the 1-26 and Swallow builds...I think I passed. 😬

                  Note the snow flurries in the background.

                    Okay...the plan for Wednesday morning:

                    1) Sleep in late
                    2) Have leisurely breakfast about 9:00am and catch up with friends.
                    3) Go to lunch and talk about flying
                    4) Have early dinner and talk more about flying and catch up with additional friends.
                    5) Go to Dairy Queen
                    6) Go to bed early

                    Any questions???

                          Great!!! We will pot the restaurant of choice here, at the moment we are thinking Ristorante Ottaviani in downtown Cumberland.

                        Day 1 ~ March 21, 2018

                        Looks like we had 2" more accumulation of crystal white sunshine (aka white sailplane camouflage) overnight. So far in the first two days of Spring, we have had more snow than during the entire winter!

                        We are kicking off the snow melt watch party at D'Atri's Restaurant this morning at 9:00am:

                        D'Atri's Restaurant
