Go get it

Looks like the pressure gradients are going to be in our favor and we are going to get good kiting wind today @ third/crissy. Get it while the getting is good...

Good winds, Z.

As Britt says

As a fallen pop princess says "hit me baby one more time"......one more good day of wind for 3rd. Good N to S pressure gradient, and a modest on shore gradient spells good news for wind lovers......It may fade a bit sooner they yesturday, as the high is forecast to move more overhead.....but you know how forecasts are..........my gut tells me a fine afternoon will be had by all who want to........Get some.

Now off to soccer......

Get some, Z.

I'm crossing my fingers that Folsom with get up to 20 from the North. They are calling for 15 to 25 but looking out my window it's not there yet.

Hope to see you out if you live in the area.

Chico is the place to be today-- blowing 25. I know homegrown is ripping it up there right now. I'm still hoping this north wind shifts to the east side of the valley! 8-[
