    1. I'm not much into ongoing groups, but I do like classes to get me inspired to write again. - Margy

  2. That's some significant equipment ... how do you use the data that it gives you? I expect it helps you decide about flying your lovely plane!

    1. We keep records of trends such as water levels and amounts of rain. It doesn't help with the plane though. It's in a hangar about 100 miles south in Bellingham. - Margy
