Durned Weather!

I had a long flight scheduled with John today. We were going to fly to Allentown, Pennsylvania, about 125 nautical miles north. Our plan was to leave between 3:30 and 4:00, fly up there, have dinner at the airport restaurant, then leave after civil twilight to fly back. The entire trip would have counted as more cross-country time, and the flight back would have satisfied a requirement for a dual cross-country flight at night of more than 100 nautical miles.

The morning was foggy, and fog became haze, and although it was a lot better at 3:00, the reports were that visibility was only 4-5 miles along our intended route of flight. So we scrapped the flight. Oh, well, I think Rich and I are going to do the night cross-country this week, so I'll keep making progress.
