    Happy solstice!

    It's all uphill from here. Say a prayer to the soaring gods to give us a good season!

    Wahoooooo!

    I was having similar thoughts... Usually, drier La Nina winters are followed by above average soaring seasons.

    Happy solstice! It's probably psychological, but I think I can already tell the days are getting longer.

    The days are actually getting longer by a little over 1 minute per day...
