12 Feb., 2010 -- In the fog and snow...


These guys are practicing, they land and sit on the runway for a few minutes.
Sometimes they make a few go-rounds in the pattern.
Today, just one landing, and then they disappeared into the snow and mist.

10 Feb., 2010 -- Flying things... some do, some don't

The doves belly up to the banquet table.

I can fly! Really, in this 36 mph wind, I can fly!

Yeah, me too... I can fly! Look, a runway (almost) without snow!

Well, that didn't work so well.

I'll try a drift, launch over the revetment, never mind the tailwind.

Well, that didn't work so well, either.

Maybe I'll just go ice dancing. Olympics material?

8 Feb., 2010 -- Fighting the elements


Snoopy checks the gps coordinates and zooms out to survey for a likely spot to hide a geocache. We hid our first two caches today, in the snowing and blowing. I did the online registration this evening. They have to be okayed by the reviewer, then they will be published and treasurer hunters can start looking, and trading the goodies.
