The Wind Is Gone

The past three days when you would wake up the first thing you could hear was the wind howling outside the hotel window.


The wind chill factor made it feel like 12 degrees at launch time yesterday.


Things are different today. It was finally quiet this morning. No wind beating the hotel windows. Maybe we're finally getting a break in Texas.

For the few who were actually questioning how cold and tough it was running across this lake yesterday; hop in the bed of a pickup, speed up to about 50 miles per hour or more and have somebody throw a 5-gallon bucket of ice water on you every now and then!
