Wacky Weather

It's the 29th of January already. Unless we get some (typical New England)wacky swing in the weather, we will have gone this entire month without seeing the grass or 45°. That's a harsh winter even for Connecticut. We've had at least 4 snowfalls this month plus the big storm on New Year's Eve.

We've had either 2 or 3 'normal' days off, at least 2 delayed openings, one day where the high and middle schools (which open at 7:45) had school but due to increasing winds and downed power lines the elementary schools (open at 8:45) did not, plus Monday when both the main and backup boilers at our high school failed and we got out at 10:15. Only in Cowtown.

Despite the constant snow cover, I managed to launch 5 times this month - one single MMX plus 4 launches of 2-5 flights each. I can't wait till conditions are such that parachutes will open and my rockets don't get wet on touchdown.
