When Flying A Kite
Before setting your kite into the sky
make sure that the weather conditions are safe.
That the sky is clear and there are no rain or storm clouds
within 10 miles of where your are. Lighting can travel that far
and parts of your kite may attract activity.
Stay out of areas with electrical and power lines
where a kite can reach or land,
as well as
in someone’s yard,
in a street with traffic,
or where people are gathered.
Also, you may be in an area where there are restrictions of
how high kites are allowed to fly.
