Winds where very high Saturday shutting down flight demos, wind chill was quite extreme for Florida but its a nice change from 90º Christmas / New years. No Sweating is a plus

I did go Early Friday, real bad weather moved in an shut down the event 20 min’s after I bought my wrist band, fortunately they honored it the next day.
