Looks like storms all day for us here in the NW Panhandle. Don't you hate it when you're so stoked to go flying and the weather changes your plans for you? ;)

That's when I like ta go up and get pictures !
When I see it coming like that !!
I wish I could have! And that is a fantastic idea! But within 10 minutes of taking that picture with my cell phone, it was raining HARD. The incoming winds when a storm blows in from off the Gulf like this are in excess of 20mph on the ground. At a 75' flight level, they're significantly higher. Since I did an advanced calibration yesterday, I didn't want to risk flying her in that kind of wind without a few more test flights. :)

And have gone up and the rain start and almost not get down in time but I love that rush :D
Being where you are at though is a different story !

That thread is hilarious!

In addition to doing work on it yesterday, I only have about an hour of overall flight time on this particular aircraft. It will be a few more hours of experience before I'm brave enough to face an incoming storm! ;)
