It costs payload to recover the boost vehicle. Especially to bring it back to launch site rather than a barge. Then again, the barge costs money. SpaceX has done a fantastic job of advancing the technology. The space race was us vs Russia. We launched the Saturn5 on 5 huge engines. The Russians tried to light 30 engines on their first stage with horrible results.

Nicely done - It's good to have foreground items to give the sense of scale.

Getting 'lake effect' from wind even if lake isn't full. I'm by the helicopter pads and have been experiencing same. Doesn't seem to be as prevalent when winds are calmer.

We are at the east end of the airport and the roof I am talking about faces north.

Hmmm! My deck is a 100' higher than the airport and cold air settles. Perhaps the slightly higher temps and the full exposure to winds does it.
