March Winds and Madness!

March 01, 2016 at 5:29 PM

Standing Lenticular CloudsAs I sit and watch mountain wave clouds form toward the foothills, I’m reminded of the poetic saying that “March winds bring April Showers.”  Of course, we saw some very strong winds during the month of February as well.
 
Many pilots start thinking about knocking off with winter rust and pulling the airplane out.  Why not include a crosswind training session as part of your anti-rust activities?
 
To motivate you, we’re offering a “March Madness” price of $199 for anyone who schedules and pays for a Maximum Demonstrated Crosswind session during the month.  Just mention the “March Madness” promotion when you call. 
 
While I couldn't locate the exact poem I was thinking about, here's a version that is fun.
 

January brings the snow, 
Makes our feet and fingers glow. 
 
February brings the rain, 
Thaws the frozen lake again. 
 
March brings breezes sharp and shrill, 
Shakes the dancing daffodil. 
 
April brings the primrose sweet, 
Scatters daisies at our feet. 
 
May brings flocks of pretty lambs, 
Skipping by their fleecy dams. 
 
June brings tulips, lillies, roses, 
Fills the children's hands with posies. 
 
Hot July brings cooling showers, 
Apricots and gillyflowers. 
 
August brings the sheaves of corn, 
Then the harvest home is borne. 
 
Warm September brings the fruit, 
Sportsmen then begin to shoot. 
 
Brown October brings the pheasant, 
Then to gather nuts is pleasant. 
 
Dull November brings the blast, 
Then the leaves go whirling past. 
 
Chill December brings the sleet, 
Blazing fire and Christmas treat.
