    It may blow but it will be very cold! May be better off trying for afternoon wind on Friday. Best regards, Chris Lee

        Look for the wind direction and the second and third number after that. 
        E.g. ..., ENE, 57, 16.1, 20.3, ...
        It means blowing ENE (57 degree) with wind at 16.1 mph and gust at 20.3 mph. 
        It's not very readable but you can at least get the "realtime" numbers.

          Chris,
           
          You did a great job getting the Eddy Meter back up and running.  I'm sure the 'reboot every 3 hours' is not ideal in the long run, but the system has been ROCK SOLID!
           
          Looks at the numbers right now (Tuesday Night 11:00PM).  Looking good..  And I love the update rate of the readings.  It's might just work tomorrow morning.  And what's all this talk about it raining and getting wet. 
           
          Geez Jim.... don't we always get wet?!?!?!?
           
          :-)
           
          Too bad it's not forecast to be warm...

          N today was a fun but short day.  The kiters went way up to Beef Butte again.  We weren’t able to get up there but had a nice time anyway with the three of us.  Rusty showed up as we were derigging.  It looked as though it might have picked up a tad n he launched from turners just fine.
