Okay, fine. Lemons, lemonade, whatever--I took the kids & dog to a play field to run around and try and fly a kite. After an hour of mixed success, I came to the conclusion that the wind is just slightly not strong enough to fly a kite in. That is; there was just enough wind to keep me trying, but not succeeding, for about an hour and a half.
Mother Nature, you are no lady.
