Here’s phone video of the gust front at the LZ on Saturday
Lasted about 40 minutes, so ‘front’ seems inaccurate. Blew a tumbleweed up and across the LZ, peeled the SW corner of the astroturf up. Rain to NW but flow from SW, pushing 20 mph at times. A couple of hg’s landed in the strong wind, no problems. Others just hovered and waited it out.
I got a ride up to Crestline from Reid and Zac and launched at 6:34 for a relaxing 22-minute sledder.
