Plans to finish some projects over the weekend were changed due to some wild weather late Friday night, early Saturday. Thunderstorms, with some downed trees, and quite a bit of damage on the West side of the Twin Cities. Last night it was more of the same, but North of the cities, and into Wisconsin got hit pretty hard this time. I spent the weekend with some downed trees, and my chainsaw.
Monday night before the storms came through, Chris, Courtney, and I spent some time playing in the wind, and waves on Medicine lake. Winds were 15kts gusting to 20kts, this gave us some waves to play with. Its always fun to try and do some rolls in different conditions, it gives you a feel for rolling up into the wind, and with the wind ... and why suddenly your offside roll takes on some importance.
