The winds were howling, but the sun was out all day Saturday. Bob and I enjoyed several hours of housework in and outside catching the breezes that were gusting to 30 knots. I am supposed to fill up the company plane each time I fly it, and did not last time so we had to get out to the airport to fill it up. So, once the sun started to set and the wind died down, we enjoyed two quick hops around the pattern. While the breeze on the ground may have calmed, it was still howling in the night sky. The practice was good, the landings were great and the view was amazing.
