    Sigh....

    This is the kind of day that makes me wish I had a sailplane or motorglider. Nice evenly scattered cumulus, winds at 7kt, cloudbase at 9000, thermal updraft velocity at 700 fpm+. It's HOT outside, but we have more than our share of solar energy out there.

    Sorry, just had to vent!
