    FB? What's that?

    Never saw the need or use for it.

    Cheers

    FB is basically for my extended familiy. And there are some pilots in there- but mostly the family I don't get to see often.

    I go about once a month just to see what's what and to keep the account open.

    I deleted mine. The only trouble I had was they insisted I put down a reason. I finally typed in "because my wife told me to" and poof it was gone.

    Okay I just filled out a "deletion request" on FB. They didn't ask me any questions, just had me prove I was a human a la Captcha. But they said it takes 14 days to actually delete the account. :dunno: We'll see... my guess is I'm going to be absolutely SPAMMED with junk from FB over the next two weeks.

    I deactivated (or whatever they call it) my LI account a long time ago. Hasn't stopped the robo-linkup "requests".

    Linked in is the only place that sends me spam I can't get rid of. you have to have an account to stop all the E-mails. Bleech!

    Yep. Last night in a fit of inspiration I actually CLOSED my LI account. This morning... more spam from them. :mad2:

    Once they have your email address, there is apparently no way to stop the spam other than to delete the address...

    What email service are you using (and what sort of mobile device if applicable)? Wonder if you can't just route email from their domain to a folder that you don't look at and that doesn't get delivered to your mobile device(s).

    Blame your "friends" who joined linked in and gave them your email address.

    My airplane is back together enough for a short cross-country in good weather... Planning on a breakfast/ lunch foodie double-header... KCMI- KRPJ- 05C. 2 in my airplane. :D I think Leslie P. has already said she has a 99's meeting tomorrow, Dr. Bruce. Liz B. is planning on being there!

    I am strongly considering going. I need more cross country time for my instrument rating anyway.

    Both Liz's what? ;)

    I'll be there. (Unless fresh snow at the airport confounds my efforts.)
    I hope Susan decides to come with, Dr. Bruce.

    A lot is going to depend on the weather in SW MI tomorrow. It looks like conditions underneath could be IFR in places, and I sure wouldn't want to chance getting into the clouds producing the snow. It's either go around 'em or top 'em.

    Might be worth going south into OH first, and then coming back up around south of GSH...

    Hmmmn. Looks like lake effect as the high is moving in, never can tell about them. but the 3 hr from now skewT at GPZ looks like it's clearing out.

    Hope to see you there. Looks like once into Indiana you'll be clear, though might have to go to Goshen before turning west. South of the lake should be clear....

    Sue decided to come.

    Provided things clear up for me in the morning south of Cleveland, I will be there. Might be a little late.

    Not necessarily. Look at the 15Z GAirmet... it shows a thin strip of IFR due to precip/BR right across NW IN. Might have to go a bit farther south than GSH. The winds start out NWerly in the morning, then swing west and then south.

    I'll have to see what the morning brings. If it's just a few miles out of the way I'll do it, but not if I have to go all the way down to the latitude of FWA.
    Hope to see both of you!

    Hey no kiddin. SBN is said to stop snowing by:
    10:00am CST (1600Z)wind 230° at 7 knots, visibility greater than 6 miles, 2,500 feet broken.

    If you're not there we'll miss you but for sure going outside your comfort envelope is not worth it.... B

    Below is a prediction, nothing more....tops at ~6500.

    I'm withholding judgement and worry until I'm ready to launch. And, even then, I may well decide to play it by ear, since I'll be at least another hour+ out. (WX everywhere else I'm likely to be looks like it will be fine - even if it isn't, I can set down and enjoy an afternoon in Podunk.)

    Coming in from the south looks to be a bit easier. Possible MVFR around the north IN area but clearing. The morning forecast should remove doubts.

    Unless the forecast for this area is a TOTAL dud and it's still snowing here in the morning, I'm definitely going SOMEWHERE tomorrow since the preheater fires are lit. Maybe I'll end up at Podunk too...

    An hour later could make all the difference though.

    Bruce: yes, topping the clouds is a possibility too, provided they have an end. That Skew-T should get refined with a later run.

    That's right, you weren't at Muncie - we're actually sisters :)

    Everyone have fun at MiTierra - been there for 99s meetings in the past, even if I had to take the wingless chariot - sounds like you'll have a great group! My meeting is in the other direction this time - up at 3CK.

    Understood Kris. It should be clearing out at least we hope it will for you.

    Does the airplane you rent sit outside?

    They usually pull the ones that are scheduled the next day into the maintenance hangar overnight, so if it clears up, I'm probably good to go.
