The lag time between "let's fly the chute" and actually getting all the spaghetti straight, the twists out, the sheets clear of the lifelines and each other, and flying it, can allow a whole new weather system to establish itself. Then, all you can say is, "it seemed like a good idea at the time"....

A good read, thanks...
