Day 2 without a lift and like the previous day, it was due to the weather.
Basically they won’t attempt this maneuver unless the wind speeds are below 15km/h. So I’ve been checking the airport’s windspeed website obsessively but the strong winds from the day before were blowing all day.
I also am wondering why ‘knots’ are still a speed/distance unit. Why are they still a thing?
While I am hoping that I’ll get word of the lift ahead of time, I am also continuing to keep an eye on the reported and projected wind-speeds too.
Tomorrow is expected to be windy but less windy than the previous two days.
As of now the projected wind-speeds for tomorrow are to be ranging between 14 to 18km/h during the day, so right on the line.
Guess we’ll see what happens tomorrow.
If you happen to use the blogging platform Medium, check out my series: Lift Day. I will also put out a pdf version of the series once its completed.
I will be back again tomorrow.
