          Well, I'm surprised that (a) today wasn't "on", and (b) that the LP RAWS was in the double digits.
           
          But I would never go up to the lake with ONLY a look at that one sensor. I wish we weren't so far down the Corps' priority list, but a look at the local aggregate on my site
           
           
          for this morning has "don't bother" written all over it, with flat numbers in Mountain Home and a vague NW trend elsewhere.
           
          (I must say that the big, positive pressure difference between Hailey and Boise -- almost 0.20" -- is a weird counter-indicator though.)
           
          Since yesterday was so outstanding, treat it as a reference for goodness:
           
          And yes, we need that meter at Barclay Bay.

            Steve Linane & I arrive @ 7AM.  Flag at diversion totally limp & glass.  Windsock at LP power plant almost limp.  View from top of damn very disappointing.  Went to parking lot anyway and met Greg Danley & some socializin.  Decided to inflate & checkout my new 15m GK Trix anyway.  By the time I had it inflated it picked up & filled in and Linane setup his 14 Contra.  Steve hit the water first, with me following shortly (thanks for launches Greg!).  Turned out to be very worth going.  Enough for OK jumps and back/front loops....not just lawn mowing.  Came in about 9:15 I think.  Like the 15m Trix alot.

              Deferred kiting till late this afternoon.  Wind 24mph G32.  More 24mph than 32mph. Beach Air Temp 54.5F.  Water mid fifties.  On the water at 5:30PM... kited till 8:00PM.  Probably the best session ever on the Oregon coast.  Maybe it was lighter, or maybe I'm getting used to the 9m, or maybe I'm getting used to the waves, but it was totally enjoyable today.  Lightly depowered the whole time.  Outer break down in the 8ft range.  Big sections of flat foamy water between breakers.  One other kite out besides my brother in law.  SOmeone on what looked like a Liquid Force HAvoc.  IS Todd from Seattle already down here?  He packed up and left before I got off the water.
               
              Chrizzo and Ryan due in tomorrow.  Wind should hold out till Friday.  Hoping for a morning AND afternoon session tomorrow.
