It was a pretty nice Sunday afternoon. The Wife decided to fly a PnP mission with me. It would have been a pretty mundane trip except for the weather. We flew three legs. KXSA to KCHO to get the dogs. Another pilot Kay (flying a Columbia 400) brought the dogs to Charlottesville from Logan, WV. We took the dogs from KCHO to KCPK, then made the quick hop home.
There were showers and pop up thunderstorms that got worse as the afternoon wore on. Visibility was good and I made good use of ADS-B to deviate around the cells. We got wet on all three legs but we easily stayed VFR the whole trip. The weather certainly was "interesting" - the two hours of planned flying took 3 hours with the deviations. I can't say I ever got concerned and I'm generally pretty cautious when it comes to weather. Now on the drive home I did get nervous as we watched a tornado form in front of us. I don't care to see that cloud formation again!
Here's the requisite photo of the dogs, the plane, and the wife.
I'm holding Bindy, a Boston Terrier and Mary has Thumper, a maltipoo (Maltese Poodle mix). N257SW provides the background.
