Rough weather here today

What a day we had here in the Southern Tier for weather. The day started very nice with lots of sun and a slight breeze. After it warmed up a bit in the afternoon, it all went south from there. Numerous severe thunderstorm warning and 2 tornado warnings. According to the local news and the NWS there were two reported tornado's east of Elmira. I also hear there was a tornado warning out in av8r's neck of the woods also. Was coming home from my brothers house when the worst of it hit. Lightning hit in a field just of the road and my 6 yr old (myself included :roll: ) just about hit the roof in the truck even wearing seatbelts. Good part is my son and I both enjoy watching a good storm, so he wasn't to awful scared. I did hear there was some damage to a few houses but as far as I know, evrybody was alright. There are still a few areas around without power though. Got a pic of some of the storm clouds right before it got bad. Hope every one east of us made out ok. Looks like it stayed strong for quit a while after it passed us.

Now going from one end to another. Bad storms yesterday to a freeze warning tonight. :mad: Wouldn't bother me except lots of plants in the garden already. Got lots of plastic grocery bags. Will have to go out later today and cover everything as best as I can and hope for the best.

I was trying to fly from Michigan to NewYork on Saturday night.. the airspace west of NewYork was full of severe thunderstorms.. the flight I was on left Detroit several hours late.. but it did get me to JFK finally.. made for a very short night before my early morning flight on Sunday.. I guess that's what coffee is for. :D :lol: :shock:

I'm not to awful scared to fly, but they couldn't pay me enough to do what you guys do. I guess you have to be born with the gene. :D Oops, I should say guys and gals. Actually I have only flown once and was pretty scared the whole time. :oops:

A buddy of mine had a saying I have adopted....."No one ever fell 30,000 feet out of a Buick" :D

I've worked with mechanics(air frame) and I currently work in manufacturing. It ain't weather that scares me. It's all those people working on them!

Hey-hey, carefull there, Jeff. I was "Airframe, Jet-engines over 4" mechanic / Crew Chief, when I was in the service. I admit there was alot of shadey co-workers, but the majority of us were top notch who had pride in their work.
GIT-ER-DONE ! :D :D :D

Well, we ain't met yet now have we?! ;) :D

I worked with a guy when I was at Advance Auto. I didn't know he was in the Air Guard at the time. He had this old Chrysler mini van with the 2.2L. It idled around 3000 rpm and sounded like a cement mixer. When he bragged to me how had rebuilt the motor in it I was like :shock: because he also told me how he was a helicopter mechanic. I don't think he realized that his car and a helicopter aren't supposed to idle at the same speed. :D

And my ex-fiance was driving my car once and slid of the road in the rain, jumped a curb and flattened the tire. Her girlfriend's husband, who was a mechanic in the Air Force changed the tire.

Now, I realize it was dark, and raining, but when I had a new tire put on at a family friends shop, he asked me "Did you change this tire?" When I said no, he said "Look at this.." All five lugnuts were on taper side out. That tells me you think that's how they go. If you were rushing, at least one of them would be right.

My dad turned wrenches during his short stint in the Air Force so I know they aren't ALL bad, just most of the ones I met.

And don't get me started on manufacturing......I've seen too much there to feel comfortable flying. :D

I actually turned down a job making jet parts. I'd always wonder if it was my part that caused a crash. :D

The little ones are more fun!
You realize just how big a jet is when you fly into Logan in the little Cessna 402-C that Cape Air uses and get to ride copilot.

Has Cape Air converted their 402-C to the coal-fired stoker-turbines yet? I heard it was in the works. :D
