Subject: RE: [snowkiteidaho] Got SkunkedI believe 100% Darrel's theory. It always seems to be best from 3 hrs before dark until 30 mins before dark on spring conditions. and the DLS time change explains the time shift from 3:30.I'm up for tomorrow if anyone is interestedEddy

Subject: Re: [snowkiteidaho] Got SkunkedWhat time did y'all go?We had a similar thing on Wed. But we hung out and it got really good. 3:30 5-7mph, 4:00 7-8mph, 5:00 10-12mph 6:00 13-15mph,. 7:00 still good, but time time to head home.Historically (and anacdotally) It seems that on those warm, sunny spring days the wind tends to shut down in the early/mid afternoon and pick back up late afternoon. I beleive it has something to do with thermals on the frontside of bennet and the lower camus area blocking the flow. As things begin to settle down later, the winds fill back in. We used to say the wind machine turned on at 3:00. I guess with the time change, that'd make it 4.----- Original Message -----From: Brian KerrSent: Saturday, March 24, 2007 8:17 AMSubject: [snowkiteidaho] Got Skunked
Blowing NW 10-15 in Boise, NW 15-25 at indian creek yesterday (Friday)
afternoon. We couldn't believe when we got to the Camas
paririe...maybe NW 2-3 Knots. Figured a front must have passed.
However,coming home it was even stronger on the Snake River Plain.
Anyone got an explanation? ?
