Satellite view

Okay, I’m excited about going away. I NEED to go away for awhile. So, as I eagerly await a long-needed break from life, I continue to find ways to remind me that I’m going on a trip. I added current weather conditions for the retreat location on this blog last night and have just added my latest reminder – a Google map that shows a satellite view of the Junction Kite Retreat location. Amazing, isn’t it?!

One has to admit that technology is amazing. Just a few years ago, who would have ever imagined we could easily find satellite views of just about anyplace on Earth? Heck, kite aerial photography may be great but it certainly can’t compare to the magic of satellite photography!

Yet another windless day

I’m beginning to wonder if there is such a thing as wind – we haven’t had any that’s sufficiently strong enough to lift a KAP rig in ages. As there is not much I can do without it, I added a weather


conditions section to this blog (located on the right side) about a week ago – it is automatically updated about once every hour. As can be seen from the latest weather conditions (as noted in this screen capture.

As you can tell, There is no wind – well, almost. The interesting thing is that the winds are so light that even the weather bureau can’t figure out what direction they’re allegedly coming from. Ugh!

Since I’ve added this information to my blog, I don’t believe that I’ve ever seen any data provided for gusts – if there is no wind, there certainly can’t be any gusts. Keeping my fingers crossed that the weather will change – and soon!
