Our version of that question, here in north Texas, goes like this: Does building rockets always cause windy days?

We're glad to have you join us here on TRF, we hope you join in here often to share your experiences too. The more the merrier.

doxiedog the answer to your question is yes, building rockets does always cause rain in Central California. :) I'm up the hill just a piece from you in Sonora. Will be going to LUNAR shoots when they start up in Livermore. Hope to see you there and welcome to TRF.

Here in the North-East (New England, specifically), building rockets causes *snow*...

...or is it snow that causes the *building of rockets*...???

hhmmmm

Although we get our share of rain, snow and wind in Upstate NY, I always thought that building rockets causes TREES to grow!!

:D

Welcome aboard, doxiedog!

Building rockets does cause rain and wind which turns cold which causes it to turn to snow which make you build rockets which causes it to turn to rain again which melts the snow and all that water run off which causes trees to grow...which makes you build more rockets...etc...the cycle repeats...

Yer all right!

Hmmm...looks like we forgot a very important cause..

..building rockets causes unnaturally addictive behavior, true self satisfaction and is just plain fun! Note that this behavior pattern is followed by the launching of said rockets, which is a whole separate issue in itself!!! :)

Doxie, welcome to the Rocketry Forum. I don't think you could have found a nicer bunch of guys with one love in common...Rocketry! About the only rules here are to have fun and talk about building and flying rockets....oh yea, pics...LOTS of pics. We want to see your pride n joy!

Once again Welcome,

Carl

Jerry,
How was your US Rockets experience? What is the quality of their product? I have interst in several of their kits, but don't know anyone that has dealt with them.

I think you guys have it wrong. It's not "building rockets" that causes bad weather, it's "scheduling a launch" that causes it!

Building Rockets - causes rain
Scheduling Launches - causes rain
Planning to attend a Launch - Causes rain

We might want to consider building Ark's along with our rockets :D

Here in the Uk the trees get up and walk into the flight path, and the weather is fine until you go outside with your range box and a few rockets and then ...........................
