RE: [BSA] Re: Start of a good weekend?
- I concur... It was one of those magical mornings. Kited from 7:45 - 9:30.
Well powered the entire time. I found the area up the canyon a ways to be
solid and filled in. I guess I got my question about NE wind answered. And
what a great way to have it answered.
Looking forward to several more days of 'magical' morning wind.

If you consider Friday part of the weekend, then I can confirm. This
morning was great. A little holey but great rides for most of the
morning. Seemed most filled in upwind, bot not too far upwind. Chris
almost sucked me in to following him up to the campground until I saw
him slogging around. Sailed until 8:30 - had to go to work :( Still
folks out and powered up as I was crossing the dam.

Sorry Tom, I should have been a little clearer. I was curious about the Boise NWS forecast of NE morning winds instead of the usual SE we see.

occasionally show up even though morning wind happens. Not sure
why you're wondering about that direction, though. NE at Caldwell
w/SE elsewhere, I'd discount.
Lucky Peak RAWS (up the lake, at the nursery) will show NW, but
the strength is what matters -- you want double digits.
Look at the meteogram to see what happens in the typical morning

It flips to SE in the night or around dawn, flips back NW late in
the morning. (Note the time scale is UTC/GMT, 6 hrs ahead of
