It’s Still Winter

Sunday, February 27th, 2011

We got around a foot on Friday, and around another 4 inches overnight on Saturday. Winter is still here, and a real crappy Monday is in the forecast for sleet, freezing rain, rain and snow. Should be fun.

A New Year

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

I figure it’s time to get active again on the blog. Our 2011 flying season will begin again in the spring when we lose winter and mud season. While it’s still up-in-the-air, it’s not looking like an early spring flying season this year. Winter still is very much here and I hope you all are able to get out and enjoy it, tho it has been a bit on the cold side this year. I’ve managed only about a 1/2 doz ski days so far this winter. I am planning on heading out tomorrow to enjoy the mild ski conditions expected.

Wifey and I also managed to escape to Florida for a short trip to mooch off my bro Richard down in Vero Beach in early Feb. We left Albany with about -10′ and landed in Orlando with near 80′. Weather was fair by north country standards, but not so much for the wienie Florida folk, like my bro and his bride Vickie.
