Checkride Update for 19 October – No Dice!

Winds aloft at 3,000 forecast 230 at 40. Surface winds at 18 gusting to 35. And ceilings are supposed to be 2,500 overcast with occasional light rain. It’s gorgeous here at the moment, but it’s supposed to deteriorate later. Not going to happen today.

Rat farts!

Rescheduled for next Tuesday, 23 October (the day after the Van Halen show at the Palace – Egad!).

I’ll keep you updated.
