Our typical beach trip with some weather that needed attention, that would about sum up this post. I filed for my typical route,one that I seem to get better altitudes with. DQO ENO EZIZI was my plan but that rapidly changed when I called for my clearance. I know, I should just file what they want to give me but at least I have to try. Maybe next week I'll just file direct and be a real lazy butt. I was cleared OXB, runway heading ENO SBY Direct.
I had a headwind to contend with and my Garmin 496 was painting a storm cell over KGED as I was just south of Dover, Delaware. My typical in flight checks has me run "WIRE" weather, instruments, radios and everything else for arrival. Destination wx looked good with some gusty winds. The wx bugaboo was a large cell over GED and I noticed it didn't move after my checks. I will always check the refresh times on the bottom of the screen and my 496 counted up to 30 minutes.
