Grounded.

Woke up this morning with a mild sore throat and with my sinus stuffed up. Crud. Took a nondrowsy pill, and then drove down to the DZ. It was a beautiful perfect day. Clear skys, and the AFF instructors were not busy, I could have jumped and rejumped as fast as the riggers could pack.

Except that my cold has grounded me. Jumping with a headcold causes blown eardrums, and blown sinus cavities, when then would ground me for a month.

Sigh.

On the plus side, he said my form on the belly board was great.
