Will this last all day? I might have to get my mother in-law to pick up the kids after school. :mrgreen:

It actually might. Fog bank is supposed to stick around until tonight sometime, which will hold the gradient.

Remember though, it gets dark at 5:15. Really dark. And cold this time of year, colder than the Bay Area. It was 38 degrees at my place this morning, 54 an hour after sundown.

Dave, how is the 1 pm slot for take-off looking? Runway clear?

Hope the dawn patrol was fun. Temps are dropping in the valley now and the clouds are moving in; not looking good for the afternoon shift.

I was amazed it held through the afternoon, given how cloudy it got. A bit holey but pretty sweet wind for the Delta in November.

I'd say if it's blowing in the morning tomorrow go get it, but don't expect it to stick around all day.

Thanks for the heads up, Z.

Man what an awesome day at SI! Before the clouds rolled in it was really steady, almost like summer except the water was way colder. =D>

It was good seeing you guys out there today. What a pleasant surprise. And hell yeah, thanks for the heads up Z! I wouldn't even have thought about it if I didn't read your post last night.

Somehow I'm feeling much better after my dose of medicine. I might be able to actually go to work tomorrow. :mrgreen:

The windows of goodness this time of the year are much smaller....sorry, tomorow does not look like a sure thing.....could happen, but not likely, definately as strong/consistent.

Get some, Z.
