TS Harvey on Tuesday Morning7:30 a.m.
Tropical Storm Harvey is about to cross south- central Florida, and we have teams getting on the airplane anyway under high overcast skies. This is going to be an interesting day.

At 8:30, we're mowing through 4-way as fast as we can, keeping our fingers crossed that Harvey will stay to the south. Talk about a reversal of weather fortune! Today was supposed to be such a washout, at least one team slept in and took a zero for missing manifest call this morning!

9:30 a.m.
Round 3 of 4-way is completed (except for a rejump for 224), but it looks like we're going to be on another weather hold for a while. We actually had sunny skies for a couple hours, but low clouds are moving in and it's getting breezy.

Hmm...well now...Airspeed decided to make things interesting by double-busting round 4, making it a tie with Purple and FX three behind. 

2:30 p.m.
Several hours on weather hold gave me a chance to fix my results pages for you Netscape users; a stray layer tag had corrupted them somewhere along the line. They should work better than ever now. The skies have cleared again, and I hear planes taxiing. We may finish 4-way minimums today!

4:30 p.m.
Okay the rain is like getting REALLY old...they have released 8-way for the day, and most of the competitors are at the creeping pad having an impromptu creeping contest.
King of the blades! Hi mom!

5:30 p.m.
Moments ago, a strong gust of wind came through the area, and the meet director responded by calling it a day. Start time is 0700 tomorrow; they will try to make minimums in 4-way and then go into 8-way.
