Lance and I got to go out on a real cloud run today. OK, so it wasn’t an actual run, like we were doing all the harvesting. But we were the wingmen for the harvesters, and were as up close and personal as you can get without actually flying the nets. It was really cool.
The lead pilot was pointing out all the pockets of nelurime, and giving us tips on how the wind moves the most saturated clouds into position for you.
“Let the wind do the work,” he kept saying. “Don’t fight it.”
I could really feel Serios learning it all too. He was tracking stuff better than I was, I bet. He’s going to be an incredible harvester.
If the weather holds, they say we’ll get to go out again tomorrow.
