Mary wants to head north to spend some time with her family. The plan is to meet up with her sister-in-law, spend time with the great nephews and then spend the night at my sister and brother-in-laws home.
The weather watch has begun for our Friday departure and return round trip on Sunday. Friday and Saturday look beautiful with temps in the mid fifties. Sunday has bounced back a forth with some predictions of flurries and freezing temps to partly sunny in the forties. Obviously Sunday is the concern, and being a weather guesser is the best gig out there.
Mary and I made the call to remove Sunday from the plan altogether. The updated plan still has me making the north run drop off arriving at KILG Friday at 11am. Once Mary is squared away with the rental car I will immediately head back to the beach. I’ll top off fuel once back in the hangar and be ready to launch for ILG on Saturday around 2:45pm.
Good morning! Mary is packed, my video cameras and iPad are charged and ready to go. 3 Tango Charlie has 40 gallons on board, good to go for the round trip. I'm taking a final look at the weather and we will be ready to head to the plane.The weather is looking good with the only alert of note is turbulence starting at flight level 240 and above. We won't be going there for this flight, or any other for that matter.

I swapped calls with Charles G from New Garden Airport (N57). Charles had flown down to Ocean City (KOXB) for business and the recent winter storm came in much faster then anticipated up north. Thankfully, Charles secured a hangar with our airport manager here at OXB and was safely tucked in for the snow event.
|Great shot by Charles!|
