    Will one of you please do something about the weather in this neck of the woods?
    I've been sitting on the ground, looking up, for the better part of two weeks.
    It's gone from crazy wind, to solid, socked in fog.
    I'm going crazy. If I don't get a flying fix soon, I'm going to lose my mind.

    Crappy pic but if you look far enough out, you can almost see Tennessee.

    It's so foggy here right now, that I can't see my car in the driveway.
    And I have a flying club meeting in 40 minutes.
    I'm glad some of you guys are getting some stick time.

    Well at least you won't have to put your foggles on to drive to the meeting, and get to log it as actual! :D

    Yep. That’s why I mentioned it. Flew up to the Blowing Rock, Boone and Elk River area. Flew around for a bit and headed back home.

    Okay, Shep. I'll be glad to fix it for you.

    Hang on a moment...
    .
    .
    .
    There! All done. It's fixed.

    You'll have good weather in 1 to 2 days, maybe 5 to 10 at the outside, 50 days at the most, but by no means will it be more than 180.

    That will be $95.99, please. You can send it via PayPal.

    Glad to have helped.

    Shepherd, I agree the weather up here in the Northeast this fall has been some of the worst fall flying weather I can remember! I usually love fall flying because of how great the visibility is but this fall those days were few and far between. I just got my first 1.8 hours in on Saturday in over a month because schedule and weather would just not align! I'm hoping the winter weather improves.
