It's my fault.

Postby swannie » Tue, Mar 04 2014, 03:14 PM

I realized last night that I'm the reason Spring hasn't sprung - not even a little - yet. So, I cleared all the kites out of the back of my SUV in hopes that Murphy's Law would trigger warmer (or at least more seasonable) temperatures.

However, this begs the question, where do you all keep your kites during the winter? I'm growing quite the collection, I might have to build a closet or a shed or something soon...

I've got tons of 'em in the basement. Well, maybe not tons--they are lightweight. But I do have quite a few, and they live in the basement.

Thank you for putting your kites away and I hope that it does solve our weather dilemna. We have them stored all over. In the house, closets, and garage. LOL

I am with Big Mike, we have kites scattered all over. Only our Rev bags are organized. Otherwise you are likely to find them about anywhere.

See, you two have an advantage over me: a wife that's into kites. I'm not sure that would "fly" around here. :)

They made it into the office for now. Hopefully they'll go back in the car in a week or two. :)

Garage, and usually a couple in the trunk of the car.

Hope your plan works!

Swannie are you offseting my karma? I keep mine in the basement, but I do take them out occasionally to put them together, If only just to look at. Maybe soon, if we can ever get above freezing. :(

I cant take it any more!!! today I got the urge to fly so bad, I set up the 4D, stuck air mover fan next to me and flew in the Living room! It worked very well. Just enough room to do 1 spin within my 8 ft high ceiling. Let me tell you all. the wife was less than pleased and the cat left the room never to be seen. I think with one additional fan I could fly the B2 ;-)

LOL I did fly (for real) a little after work today. The wind sucked and was anywhere from 5 to 20 mph. ... But I didn't care! :)

Got some time tomorrow afternoon. TWC says it's gonna hit the big 60. I'm heading to the field after a long winter hiatus. This is gonna be ugly, but lots of fun.

My thoughts exactly. Haven't flown anything since V-Day's day.... Something is going up in the air tomorrow. :)

I took one of the bags out ... I'm assuming that's why we only got a dusting. :)
