I'd be interested in that one.
Never even thought about it.

I've read somewhere they don't fly in 25 mph winds. Weare having quite a blow today, gust up to 50 mph or more, and they are not out at all. Temps up into low 70s F.

I read somewhere that they can fly 15-20 mph, don't know if that has anything to do with the winds they'll fly in though. :D

Their flag to Aprils breeze unfurled
Here once the embattled farmers stood
And fired the shot heard round the world
