    Default High Wind Warning

    Yep, fall has arrived. Tonight's high wind watch has changed to a high wind warning. Check your tie downs, boys and girls.

    Glad I got my flying in this week! Spent quite a bit of time flying out here and Nancy finally got to go flying in her plane!

    I was on AK181 departing out of ANC this morning bound for Fairbanks.. While waiting in the terminal I had my ear phones in listening to ATC.. The big boys were having a very tough time getting the planes on the ground this morning.. UPS62 & AK62 aborted landings twice. Also got to listen to how ATC deals with similar call signs in the same air space. AK62 landed first on 7R and report 50kt quartering winds. ATC then told UPS62 the 50kt winds were quartering tailwinds. UPS62 touched down and seems a bit upset that he was experiencing 50kt quartering headwinds on 7L.

    Needless to say it was cool to hear the pilots landing these planes in terrible conditions. My hats off to these guys making it look easy from Coach...

    Not yet, working on that with Adam from TRA. I have been out here on my own and had Adam give Nancy a ride before we left and went back to Birchwood. Soon though very soon!

    I was so friggin windy last night that the 2ftx2ft attic peak vents were ripped out of the sides of my house. The tarps I had over my firewood are probably half way to Japan by now...!
