Rocket Launch 03/05/2022

Gusts up to 40 MPH

What a beautiful day, for early March, with a high temperature of 79 degrees F. The wind was a different story. According to, the winds were a constant 10 mph with gusts up to 40 mph. We had a challenge, used a lot of streamers, and had a great day as usual.
