The weather is better in Hobbs

Evan sent this image of yesterday's cloudbase forecast for Hobbs, New Mexico (X marks the spot). Red is good (note the scale at the bottom).

It could be better, I guess. We know what color comes after red.

I'd be happy with green, here.

Dave Nadler has a nice blog from the contest:

- some wild stories, such as (from Day 1): "Ron Tabery had water system failure at the first turn, resulting in the right wing empty and water splashing in through the air vent. That sprayed water on the canopy making it hard to see and left him sitting in 8 inches of water (no drain-hole in the seat-pan)! Ron still managed to win the day ..."
