Default This weekend

Many years later, but I am teaching again on weekends as a level 2 PSIA ski instructor at a family friendly ski area, it feels good teaching again. Had a blast teaching over the past few days. Got off early today and did a flyby over Spring Mountain Ski Area.

Battled a 40 knot headwind flying from SoCal to NorCal.
Enjoyed a 35 knot tailwind flying from NorCal to SoCal.

This weekend, the upgrade to a faster airplane was a good thing. Saved us 17 minutes up, 13 minutes coming home....

The high temps here have been below zero F for two weeks... This weekend's temps ranged from -30 to a high of -10, so, to answer the threads question - nothing.

Thought about it a lot. Downloaded databases. Something about 200' ceilings and 1/4 mile in fog that I let discourage me...

Cancelled my Florida fishing trip with my brother, icing on the flight there and back and thunderstorms while we were going to be there. Home improvement projects and a little hunting in single digit temps instead.
