    Hmm, strangely enough, I didn’t check that time against the club and there are no planes available due to a club trip.

    if anyone coming from Raleigh, I can be a passenger. Have a plane for Feb 1

    I'm starting to think Mother Nature is taunting those without an IR. This is the current forecast for Jan 25, which is quite similar to the one a few weeks ago on Jan 4 and the original date of Dec 14.

    It's winter. Lots of rain and low ceilings are expected.

    I’d love to, but my plane is still in the avionics shop getting the panel upgraded. Maybe next time.

    Just got my alternator install completed, but heavy rain forecast for Friday. I operate from grass so that may keep me grounded on Saturday.

    If the grass isn't a swamp on Saturday, I can make it. But that's a long shot at this point.

    Still showing IFR past 1pm locally, hoping the next TAF cycle shows improvement.

    00z TAFs and discussion are still not very optimistic, but going to keep watch and see what the morning brings.

    It’s looking like overcast and low freezing levels here in southern Ohio. I’m gonna say I won’t be flying in.

    I was trying to take my dad to BQ1 and decided not to push it with marginal VFR potential ice in the clouds ruling out IFR. The weather into GMU ended up being so nice we headed that way instead. We got there just before 2:00. Sounds like I may have just missed you @BrianNC.

    That's it. :D

    That is a busy restaurant. Lots of families and outside too on the playground. And seemed like a very active airport as far as people activity all around.
