Hey Pete,

Same here in Michigan! Finally got out yesterday for the first time in three weeks. Didn't get to 40 but close enough.

Paul, I got out today for a couple hours plowing through the sky in a 172. It was about 20 degrees, but pretty good skys. I can't wait to get my plane inspected and in the air!

I do NOT miss the Michigan winters!!

Default The ice before the thaw

The thaw hit us early this week. It's a welcome change.

Before the temps creeped out of the freezing temps, I took a flight to capture the northern Chesapeake Bay frozen.





The RV cockpit was very comfortable with the sun out!

We got into the 50s here today, but it isn't going to last long. Back in the single digits tomorrow (Friday) night.

It sure felt good not to have the air hurt my face! Most of the snow is gone!
