Flight Log 2010-02-19
A beautiful day for flying (and in the midst of the snowpocalypse that is saying something). Today was the one clear day between rounds 3 and 4 of the continuing parade of snow storms. The temp was -1°C, wind 260@04, altimeter 30.15". Officially, clear with 8 mile visibility, it was a little hazy horizontally, but brilliant blue when you looked up. At altitude, you could see "cloud" tops, so the haze was real. I did some soft-field takeoffs and landings and just enjoyed the day. One nice thing about winter flying, it was smooth as glass. You could take your hands off the wheel and just fly with your feet. This is why I love being a pilot.
