    Well, we threw in the towel this morning after seeing windshear warnings at 2000 feet, and 40-90 winds from 2k-4K feet. Ground winds seemed nearly calm.

    But I needed to adjust the prop anyhow, so there was reason to get up. Jake joined me for a short excursion around the neighborhood.

    I also canceled going north but things died down about 11 for awhile and I got together with some friends. Even saw Dan Bullís old 12 come out of sick bay with a few new parts. Click image for larger version.

    You have been taught well "Grasshopper"
    Winter crop land patrol is an operational expense, be sure to send your fuel receipt down to Florida for reimbursement and continue to have fun!

    Here in Shoreham I went out on my new 22 smoothies yesterday. Couldn't test my new brakes with all the wet snow, I think I could have taken off just as quick with the brakes locked. Dunmore looked whiter than a week ago, didn't persue. When I dragged the lake, people didn't wave, but phones came up. Is that a thing now?
    What's a go-around?

    I stopped listening to the weather boobs 20 years ago. Sat on the ground the first few years watching perfect flying days go by. Anything past 12 to 24 hrs they don't have a clue most days. They are getting better at predicting when the sunsets most days. I'm ready to go with 10 min notice and fly when I can. Look out the window and you'll have better info and decide it your going. Haven't called WXbrief in 20+ years

    You are on my list cap cub. By the time I hit JAX airspace after a steady 20 mph headwind that never left me from Exeter Maine to FL I was ready to get out. The lady at Jax center was not miss congeniality with a carbon cub at 100 mph in the middle of her turf at 2000. I wanted south on the coast to look at some of the potatoes being planted in Hastings but she took me way west. That's a busy parch of sky. I wil get with you. Still fly the good stuff around on Frf afternoons? I'm going to Sebring tomorrow meet me there for lunch

    Went out today thinking I would hit a few lakes and ponds and quickly decided to abort, ice is so rough I feared for my skis. Plan to switch over tomorrow - that means it will snow early next week.

    From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be
    found in all corners of the earth."

    Then he made the earth round... and He laughed and laughed and laughed!
