Overcast, Windy, with a chance of BLUE ANGELS!
This weekend is the 25th Anniversary of Wings Over Houston. We live just a couple of miles from Ellington Air Force Base, and today THEY'RE BAAAAAACK! Two Blue Angels flew so close to my head I shivered just a little while ago. The sky is overcast, with a low ceiling, and moderate to high winds. It was excIIIIIting! *squeal!*
Family legend has it that our dad's cousin, Admiral Jim Flatley, helped create the Blue Angels, but I have never found anything substantiating that. Nevertheless, he was an Ace in WWII and quite a guy.
