Re: Back on line!

I saw that come through, thank you! Completely unexpected and didn't expect my message to elicit a donation. Cost and time were two hurdles to overcome for this update. Glad it's coming together.

Back on line!

Sincere apologies for this Community tab being stunted for a few months. It's a wonderful reference for our wind communities history and what I went to for my on topic fix back in 2004. Social media has it's place but in this era of Big Data I'm seeing the greater value of this forum to better serve...

Where's the conversation?

This website was built in 2002. Pre Go-Daddy, and before the social sites like Facebook took over the gravity of conversations. You will find a healthy amount of conversations still happening in a variety of both public and private social pages like https://www.facebook.com/lakawamn/ https://www.fac...

For example: snowboard...

Spoke to a fisherman today and he said it's about 5-6" where I checked 5 days ago. I'll guess we've maybe gained an inch since then. Fair amount of kiters and fisher people out again today. I'm not comfortable going across the middle yet. Wonderfiul playground out there. A few surface slush spots.
