    Georgia is wonderfully mild. Low 90's (F) are about it in the summer, high 20's are about it in winter.

    Actually this winter has been warmer than the previous 20 or 25 years. It has been hovering around 30 degrees F for last while and it is usually around 10 degrees F.
    And the weather has been raining, wet snow and very windy the worst flying weather ever.

    Well it's been miserable weather here... still. I'll agree with you @Snoopy1 It's been the worst flying weather than I can remember.
    Today it was gusting up to 50mph, got about 1.5" of rain, roughly 39F, and a constant 80% relative humidity. Snow is pretty much all gone. Feels like October! At least I'm getting some shop time. I have the 89" laser ready to fire up... just need a free and clear day to do it. . .
    On a different note, I got my pfizer covid vaccine a few days ago. All is well - no worse than a flu shot for me - a bit sleepy 10hours after, but a short nap and I was back at it. My wife has already had both doses and she did well. Alaska seems to be on top of their game for getting supplied and dispersed quickly.

    That is great for both of you ,all fixed up glad for you. Not so good around me have not heard a thing the only thing I keep hearing is that they have run out of vaccines and they have not even got all the medical people done.

  6. I had a dream last night that the wife and I got vaccinated. But it will be a while before we get ours. Lots of people ahead of us.

    My wife is a Nurse in Critical Care, she was among the first to get it here. I was about four weeks after her to get mine. Working for the airline and being her spouse were contributing factors for me getting the vaccine. I am very thankful and I hope you all don’t have to wait long.

    That looks good and comfortable do you still have enough space to take your planes to the field.
    The weather looks great, right now it is in the low twenties and received four inches of snow. No flying for me right now.
