Rocket Launch (11/07/20)

Rain? We left in the unpredicted rain, drove in the rain and arrived in the rain. Luckily, about 30 minutes after we arrived the rain stopped and we even got a little sun during the day. The wind was worse up in the sky so the rockets, under parachute, drifted a little far at times, but overall a great day and about 72 degrees.
