I was hoping that by this very time I could have posted some pictures and announced that I had completed my second solo cross-country flight.
Alas, it was not to be.
Instead it has been both overcast and snowing, yes snowing all day.
Both my departure and destination fields have been varying degrees of IFR and LIFR, with a window of VFR that would have gotten me caught up in IFR conditions with nowhere to land had I been suckered into trying to give it a go. This is why checking the weather matters quite a lot.
So I had to cancel due to conditions and instead watch the snow come down on this rather grey day.
Ah well, better to be down here wishing I was up there than the other way around.
