Snow, Crosswinds, And IFR Conditions

All mean I'm not flying yet again today.

Lots of snow coming down, especially quite a lot for April 9. I will most likely need to shovel the driveway.

Add in a crosswind component of 15 knots gusting to 23 knots. A 15 knot crosswind component all by itself is beyond my permissible solo flying limits. 23 knots worth of crosswind component is potentially beyond the plane's permissible safe flying limits.

Tack on visibility now in the IFR range and with it projected to remain so throughout my flight for the entire area, and today is just not my day.

Drat.

flagunblog; Outstanding! If they had opposable thumbs, they probably learn to could takeoff and land as well....or not.
