May 23

The wind is strong from the North, which means any record flight would end up in Mexico after only 150 miles. Plus there are strong thunderstorms predicted, and the wind is about 20 on the ground; with all these factors, we call the day. Scott and Eric go to Carlsbad caverns, while I work on this site, run, and do the parawaiting hang. Huge thunderstorms cause the weather service to interrupt normal programming on radio stations with severe storm alerts and spotter activation, which means they ask people to look for tornadoes. I'm glad to be on the ground for once.
