    I need to move to Champaign. You guys have better weather all the way over there. The forecast here keeps vacillating between blizzard and partly sunny.

    I've found the pattern when we actually get a big snow in STL is that the forecast starts as light rain or flurries, then well maybe some accumulation, next it'll be an inch or two, and finally (sometimes after the event!) they settle on 6"+ (which for those of us from the north, is not much, but the locals consider snowmageddon).

    The European model started with 15 inches of snow, then 1, then 7, then none, then 4. Currently at 1 again. GFS is at 4.

    You always watch the weather closer than I do ... It's supposed to stay west of here, right?

    I'm a weather junkie....but not really. GFS says you're not going anywhere but European says you're fine.

    Sounds like I could get there, but not get home on Saturday. May try driving in if it is still a go, as I have other things to do in LAF while I am there.

    There’s a “force field” around west central IN, e IL, with this storm and the last one blasting all around us, S, W, N, E, with no snow here. Kinda crazy.

    Some may say, “copious amounts of hot air” at least the NE IL part.

    Around Chicago the Euro model gets super inaccurate.

    Why would one use a European model here in the U.S? :D

    We are back in the 4 inches of snow band. Even if it only snows 2 inches and the clouds clear, there's no way my hangar will be cleared before lunch. I am more than likely out.

    With the weather suckage, and @masloki having the clap, let's officially push to our crappy weather date of the 22nd. We should all have omicron by then. Besides... What's the chances of two lousy weather weekends in a row. In January. In the Midwest*.

    I'm in. Heck if 50 of us get together, we could buy one. Of course we couldn't afford to fly it, but we could sit in it and make airplane noises. Maybe we could let @kaiser start it up, just once.



    *I'm aware this is a controversial & offensive term. Please insert your preferred regional name here.

    Someone told me eman1200 is really good at air plane noises. Judging by his moniker picture, he has been practicing a long time!

    Haha … we really only need like 10 of us to get a /47. You can probably run them (part 91) for 800/hr.


    I’m sorry, what??

    Same time and location?

    When you call it ‘the clap’ it’s applause, and that’s good right? Almost as good as Corona (the beer) and certainly more fun than a ride on Delta (coincidentally, we figure it’s the airport or the DAL flight where we actually got it).

    To save me from scrolling backwards through a hundred posts, where are you talking about meeting on 1/22?

    Edit: Terre Haute? Am I reading that correctly?
