BS?! Why that there had a lot of geography lessons in it.
I know where I live...and that I want a burger... I'm not complicated...
I’m a tentative yes.
don't you love it when the national network weather person based on the east coast talk about Chicago as being the Mid West!!!
Yeah, but what about the Mormons?
Taken this morning, near KLUX. Hopefully there will be better color next weekend.
Leslie and I had planned to head up there tomorrow, but the cold weather and the 30kt gusts changed our minds. If the colors hold up, we might go in a week or two, but this weekend, we are going somewhere in Florida.
Okay, so what time is this little soiree??? If Wingwing's heater installation gets done in time this week I may be able to make it...
Noonish, I'd say. The cafe is open from 1100 to 1500 hours.
60% chance of rain now forecast.
Whatcha think'n... Look'n like a strong possibility of a probable maybe ...
Not looking good, gusty winds, clouds and rain.
Could be worse. Could be, ... oh, nevermind.
I'll wait to hear. I'm probably going to fly tomorrow anyway, but may go in a different direction (like toward the water) where forecast seems a bit better.
for anyone looking to fly there is a PnP flight going on where the lady is having trouble filling the JQF to LHZ leg. I would be all over it if my plane was out of the shop but it aint so I can't commit to it. I told her I'd ask around so lemme know if you think u can do it. dog is coming into JQF on saturday.
Looks like low ceilings for sure in that area. AVL TAF is calling for 200-600' ceilings until afternoon. Bummer.
Saturday A.M. in our neck of the woods is MVFR Light Rain and rain showers albeit I can't get any info past 9z
Anyone for Sunday?
Some nice IFR practice going on there tomorrow. Get out and enjoy the weather!

I was going to do an Angel Flight tomorrow, picking meeting for leg 2 at AVL, but the patient isn't going to be able to travel tomorrow.
Guess we’re a washout
I’m going to take advantage of the mild IFR conditions and get in a few approaches
Can't .... But outlook not much better than today, anyway... Try for Next Saturday? Maybe Eman will have his plane back by then too...
We gonna try this again this weekend...?
I’m not sure about this weekend. The Monroe air show is this weekend so I might do that either Saturday or Sunday depending on weather.
Never been to that...any good?
Don’t know. It’d be my first time. I hear it’s pretty decent.
It's decent if you like WWII vintage aircraft. Not a GA friendly event at least not the last time I went. All the airplanes are roped off away from the spectators.
Well, that certainly sucks. While I do enjoy watching the flying portion of airshows, I enjoy getting up and close with the planes just as much if not more.
not to mention the big fat TFR around monroe, just in case u thought u were gonna fly in.
TFR is only for two hours.
What sucks is it getting dark at 1730 hours.
For the record, I’d double check that tfr. It’s 3 days worth.
Damned SkyVector! It's two hours on the first day.
Not going anyway, FWIW.
Website says they discourage fly ins also. That's starting to become the norm at some of these events. FFC has done that in recent years and it used to be a good show to fly in for. You'd think they'd make a good chunk of change off selling gas and encourage fly ins.
@eman1200 are you still grounded?
Still grounded. Wish I would have had the issue at my home field.
Can't make it Saturday. Flight review just scheduled.
Where is it at? Any feedback yet?
